A Major Impressionist and Post-Impressionist, Bernhard Gutmann (1869-1936) recorded his travels and the joys of family life in paintings distinguished by luscious color and an exuberant sensibility. He was not only a painter who received serious critical acclaim during his lifetime but also a beloved teacher, a successful illustrator, and a master of ceramic and graphic art. In addition, Gutmann had a great influence on American regional art: he organized the still-thriving Lynchburg Art Club in Virginia and later helped establish the influential Silvermine Guild of Artists in New Canaan, Connecticut.
