WILLIAM LANGSON LATHROP (AMERICAN 1859-1938)
"COTTAGE BY THE WOODS"

Oil on canvas
22 x 25 in. (55.9 x 63.5cm)

Provenance: The Halow Studio, Reading, Pennsylvania.
Acquired from the above, January 9, 1917.
The George D. Horst Collection of Fine Art.
NOTE:
Considered the father of the Pennsylvania Impressionist School, Lathrop served as a mentor to many of the artists who flocked to New Hope Pennsylvania including Daniel Garber. His home at Phillips Mill became the central meeting point of the art colony. Long considered a tonalist, Lathrop would work plein air but finish his often muted rural landscapes in the studio.
