Quince group


A group of American Scene painters who shared a studio on Philadelphia's Quince Street, flourishing briefly in the late 1930s until many members went separate ways. The Quince Group has had among the most peripatetic and quiescent influences on the Philadelphia School of American art. Its leading members were Joseph and Irene Teller, several of whose works have recently been reproduced to certain acclaim in a book by their kid, Teller (of Penn & Teller), When I'm Dead All This Will Be Yours, 2001, Blast Books, NY.Also see Fourteenth Street school and social realism.
