Daniel Garber was born in 1880 to a Mennonite farm family near North Manchester, Indiana. In 1897 he left to study art with Vincent Nowottny at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Ohio. He went on to study with Hugh Breckenridge at the Darby School in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, in the summers of 1899 and 1900. Between 1899 and 1905, Garber enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he studied with William Merritt Chase, Julian Alden Weir and Cecilia Beaux. He was awarded a Cresson Traveling Fellowship to England, France, and Italy between 1905-1907. In 1909 he returned to the Pennsylvanian Academy of Fine Arts as a member of the faculty. He taught painting and drawing there for the next 41 years, and was notorious for his high expectations of his students. Garber illustrated books and magazines, including the collected works of Theodore Roosevelt. He was also a print-maker and was awarded several solo exhibitions of his drawings, etchings and prints. He began to receive national prominence for his paintings after winning the Hallgarten Prize from the National Academy of Design in 1909. He was elected Academician of the National Academy in 1913. Known as one of the most original of the Pennsylvania Impressionists, Garber depicted the quarries, woods and Delaware River valley of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and the Lambertville and Lumberville areas of New Jersey. Buyer has choice of frame as shown in pictures.
