Genesee group of painters geneseeans


This group of representational painters were active in the Genesee River Valley near Rochester, New York, in the early 20th Century. Dedicated to resisting European modernism, which increasingly was influencing American painters, they sought through plein-air painting to capture the Spirit of Place through their regional landscapes. Among the members were Milton Holm and Carl Peters. Source: R.H. Love Galleries, courtesy, Michael Worley, Ph.D
