Jennifer C. Krieger, Owner of Hawthorne Fine Art (www.hawthornefineart.com)  in Manhattan and recognized scholar in American art will be exhibiting select works from Hawthorne’s inventory of 19th and Early 20th Century paintings at the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art, and Antique Show in West Palm Beach, Florida February 12-16. Hawthorne will be located in Booth 306 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

The numerous works Ms. Krieger has chosen to showcase in Palm Beach include Thomas Moran’s Summer Squall, a soft and sweeping view of eastern Long Island’s grassy meadows. Summer Squall has been held privately for over 20 years and is considered one of Moran’s strongest examples of eastern Long Island landscape. The widely celebrated Walter Launt Palmer will be represented by Hoar Frost, a deep exploration of the artist’s subtle use of color in his snowy winter landscapes. Ms. Krieger will also be showing one of the earliest documented American landscapes, Joshua Shaw’s Seven Hills: An American Landscape. The artist’s work is the foundation of America’s love affair with the landscape, even predating Thomas Cole, widely considered the founder of the Hudson River School.  In addition, Krieger will have a number of paintings from her current exhibition The Light Lies Softly: The Impressionist Art of Clark Greenwood Voorhees.  Many of these works have been held closely by the Voorhees family and out of public view for over 30 years.
