Edward Redfield’s Snow Scene Brings $163,800 At Alderfer’s

HATFIELD, PA  As he stood in the snow on a cold winter day, would Edward Willis Redfield (1869–1965) have imagined that more than 80 years later the painting he was working on, “Snow Scene, Lumberville, Pennsylvania,” would sell for $163,800? This was the case with the 22½-by-25½-inch landscape that Alderfer Auction sold at its June 11 and 12 fine and decorative arts auction.

The 1920s composition depicted the quaint river town just north of New Hope, Penn., where the artist lived and produced many of his works. Known for painting en plein air, or outside, on location, Redfield favored the winter season and endured freezing temperatures and snowy roads, just like the road in this painting, to complete his works.
