About the Item

Signed lower left, 'Milton W. Holm' (American, 1903-1999) and painted circa 1960. This notable American Impressionist was a long-time member of the Rochester Art Club and served as president of the Genesee Group of Painters. The Genesseeans sought to capture the Spirit of Place in their rendering of regional landscapes, and were dedicated to resisting the incursions of European modernism. Holm later became involved with the Rationalists, who he helped to organize in 1939, also in Rochester, and whose artistic goal was "orderly creation and craftsmanship plus individuality." He remained a central figure in the Rochester art colony and served as president of the Rochester Art Club between 1957 and 1959. Holm exhibited nationally with success including at the National Academy of Design for over thirty years and the Allied Artists of America from 1939-1971. He was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards from the 1920's to the 1960's and his work is held in private and public collections including the permanent collections of the National Academy of Design, the Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester. The artist is well listed in all relevant art reference works including Who Was Who in American Art We are pleased to offer this delicate and substantial Impressionist oil showing an intimate spring-time view of the curve of a stream beside a picturesque wooden barn standing upon a substantial stone foundation.
