Three painters committed to the Berks County Almshouse in Shillington, Pennsylvania, they were John Rasmussen, Charles Hoffman and Louis Mader. In a naive style, they painted scenes of almshouses and environs. Mader and Rasmussen imitated the style of Hoffman, of whom it was written that they were "the only types of homes he appears to have had."
