Arguably the foremost female painter associated with Pennsylvania Impressionism and the New Hope School, Coppedge excelled at painting wintry scenes in Bucks County and its environs. The present painting is a superb example of her signature purple hues and warm color palette, rendering the scene both charming and inviting, regardless of the snowy conditions depicted.
Excellent original condition apart from minor area of retouch at upper left corner, and an even more minor area of retouch at lower right corner; the canvas is not relined.
Frame: 27 1/4 x 29 1/4 x 2 in.
