Impressionist Painters of the Jersey Shore

On Sunday, July 21st at 2:00 p.m. at Princeton University, McCosh 50, Roy Pedersen will present an overview of Morven Museum & Garden’s landmark exhibition, “Coastal Impressions: Painters of the Jersey Shore, 1880-1940.”  Mr. Pedersen is the leading collector and historian of this important group of painters, including Will Hicock Low, Albert Reinhart, Charles Freeman, Ida and Clara Stroud, Julius Gold, Mildred Miller and others, all of whom lived and worked at the New Jersey shore.


By examining the role of these artists in the history of American art, Mr. Pedersen establishes a rich chapter in the cultural heritage of New Jersey.  According to Pedersen, co-curator of the exhibit and author of the recently published book about this group of artists, “The impressionists of the New Jersey shore were passionate, thoughtful artists who created organizations and exhibitions to present their ideas. Their achievements which for too long were ignored deserve to be seen within the body of American art of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.”
