NOTE:
As a plein-air artist, Redfield would often travel to the town of Center Bridge, trudging through the snow to set up a canvas or strapping one to a tree in order to capture the landscape around him with his vigorously bold brushwork and rich impasto. He soon became a familiar figure in the area, and his charismatic presence attracted many other artists, including George Sotter, Fern Coppedge, John Folinsbee, Daniel Garber, Harry Leith-Ross, and Kenneth Nunamaker, many of whom were directly influenced by his work and his methods.
The present winter scene depicts the "New" Center Bridge, which was completed in 1926 and built upon the remaining piers and abutments of the original bridge that was destroyed by the fire of 1923. It is believed that Dorothy Redfield bought the painting to enrich her collection of images of the bridge before, during, and after the fire.
The present painting will be included in the forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné of Edward Redfield's work, compiled by Dr. Thomas Folk.
