Hard Press Editions was approached by a private collector and admirer of George Stengel to catalogue his collection. Stengel was an American painter taken with the French Impressionists, who returned to Pennsylvania and imitated their technique on American soil. The results are colorful snapshots of a time in American history when Industry greets pristine nature — waterways a-buzzing. Stengel’s eye for his surroundings comes together in this book to present a well-rounded portrait of Northeast landscape.
