Daniel Garber

Orchard Window

Daniel Garber

While teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts between 1909 and 1950, Daniel Garber divided his time between Bucks County and Philadelphia. Best known for his depictions of the countryside and quarries along the Delaware River, the artist was also noted for his large-scale figure compositions, which often incorporated family members. In The Orchard Window, Garber's daughter Tanis is seated in front of a light-filled window that looks out to a vibrant flower garden. The scene takes place in the small stone cottage along the Cuttalossa Creek in Lumberville, Pennsylvania, that Garber acquired in 1915 with the intention of creating a rustic homestead that reflected his artistic vision.
