Daniel Garber was an American Impressionist landscape painter and member of the art colony at New Hope, Pa. He’s best known for his large impressionist scenes of the New Hope area that often depicted the Delaware River. He also painted figurative interior works and he excelled at etching. Garber taught art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for over 40 years.

Garber was born April 11, 1880, in North Manchester, Indiana. He studied art at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 1899 to 1905. During this time Garber met and married his wife, Mary Franklin, who was also an art student. The couple traveled to Europe, where Garber completed his art education. Returning to America in 1907, they settled in Cuttalossa, six miles up the Delaware River from New Hope.

Like most impressionist artists, Garber painted en plein air, directly from nature. He exhibited his works nationwide and earned many awards, including a gold medal at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (1915) in San Francisco, Calif. He was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1913. Garber died after falling from a ladder at his studio.

Today, Garber's paintings are considered by collectors and art historians to be among the finest works produced from the New Hope art colony. His paintings are owned by major museums including the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC, the Art Institute of Chicago and Philadelphia Museum of Art. His paintings are highly coveted by collectors.
