Working on-site with a forceful application of paint, Edward Willis Redfield captured the shifting light of day with palpable immediacy. In Late Afternoon, long blue shadows along the snowy banks of the Delaware river evoke the waning daylight. There is a sparkle and radiance to the blue-green water, yellow and orange houses, and purple mountains

Around 1905, Redfield began employing thick vigorous brushstrokes, tightly woven and layered with a multitude of colors. These large canvases, done en plein air, defined the essence of Pennsylvania Impressionism, making him the movement's premiere landscape painter.
