After moving to the New Hope, Pennsylvania, area in 1903, Charles Rosen developed close relationships with Daniel Garber and Edward Redfield and became known for his large, vigorously painted Pennsylvania snow scenes, which typically incorporated close-up views and high horizon lines. He painted these scenes both direct from nature and in the studio. By 1916, Rosen’s mature impressionist style often combined aspects of nature’s decorative patterns with the dynamic, vigorous qualities of nature.
