Connection to Bucks County Drawn to the natural beauty and artistic freedom of Bucks County, Edward Redfield settled in Center Bridge in 1898 with his French wife, Elise Deligant.

Although Redfield was regarded as the dean of the New Hope art colony, he did not consider himself part of this group, and consequently declined to exhibit with them.

Because of his reclusive tendencies, Redfield seldom actively mentored the younger New Hope artists who followed his influence, such as Walter Elmer Schofield, Walter Emerson Baum, John Fulton Folinsbee, or Charles Rosen.

Among this younger generation of painters, George Sotter enjoyed the best rapport with Redfield because the older artist appreciated how Sotter, as the only male in his 1902 summer course, "saved his life."

Redfield continually affirmed his commitment to the arts of Bucks County, at the end of his life practicing traditional Pennsylvania crafts, such as woodworking and making hooked rugs.

Colleagues and Affiliations Edward Redfield, Charles Rosen, and Daniel Garber were friends. Although he was also associated with other artists of The New Hope Group, he did not join them or exhibit with them. He was a mentor to Kenneth Nunamaker.
