Artist's Wife with Three Children

The Susquehanna Art Museum presented New Light: The Pennsylvania Impressionists, Highlights from the Woodmere Art Museum Collection, on view in the main gallery February 7 – May 22, 2016.

Featured in this exhibit was Roy C. Nuse's painting, "Artist's Wife with Three Children," bequeath to the Woodmere Art Museum by the artist's son Robert Nuse. The Susquehanna exhibition represented the largest loan of works from the Woodmere Art Museum to date.

Most of the artists who contributed to the movement we now call Pennsylvania Impressionism lived in New Hope, Pennsylvania. However, the city of Philadelphia, with its great museums and art schools, served as the intellectual home of the movement. The work of this broad diversity of men and women artists of Pennsylvania Impressionism is strongly represented in the collection of Woodmere Art Museum, a museum in Philadelphia that is dedicated to telling the stories of the city’s artists… Pennsylvania Impressionism represents one of the unique strengths of Woodmere’s collections, and we are honored that the Susquehanna Art Museum will be shining new light on these great cultural treasures of Pennsylvania.
