American Impressionist Edward Potthast (1857 – 1927) was famous for his sentimental seaside scenes of children and families. From Cincinnati, he studied abroad, returning to his hometown to work as a lithographer until moving to New York City, where he opened his own studio. A freelance illustrator for “Scribners” and “Century,” he soon began painting full-time, often traveling to Long Island where he created his trademark beach scenes. Potthast, a master of subtle color, reflected light and direct sunshine, adeptly captured the simple pleasures of life in his carefree works.

The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
