Daniel Garber (1880 - 1958): Buds and Blossoms, 1916, Oil on canvas, 112,4 × 92,1 cm Although he adopted the techniques of French Impressionism, Garber, rejected the Impressionist idea of painting fleeting moments and transitory effects. His subject matter was structured on reality tempered by artistic license that was conservative and classical. In a 1922 interview Garber elaborates: "My work is different, perhaps, from that of the general landscape painter in that I have a mass of detail in the mass. After all, one's job is to get everything in and yet keep it all as a whole, like an orchestra--everything working in harmony to produce one feeling or emotion." Garber painted this landscape with a tree in full bloom in the foreground in Point Pleasant, Plumstead, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
