Lot Details

This work was recently cleaned and varnish removed by former conservator of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY.

Born in Ohio, Edward Henry Potthast (1857-1927) worked in Cincinnati as a lithographer before traveling to Europe at age 24 to study in Antwerp and Munich. During his time in Europe, Potthast frequently traveled to Paris where he was exposed to and heavily influenced by French Impressionism.

Upon his return to the states, Potthast soon became recognized as one of the best living American Impressionists. His most famous works are sunny coastal beach scenes of women and children, several of which earned prizes at the National Academy of Design and the American Water Color Society.
