Mrs. Hurd's most recent acquisitions for the Payne Gallery are a group of six paintings including four Philadelphia Ten artists, one of her personal favorites W. E. Schofield, and an artist that had so far eluded us, George Sotter. With the recent acquisition of Sotter's, Ottsville House, we now round out Moravian College's permanent collection. With the addition of this collection Moravian College achieves several milestone benchmarks for the Payne Gallery's 30th Anniversary.
Moravian's Collection is the second largest Pennsylvania Impressionist collection in the county rivaled by only the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown. Moravian also now has the largest collection of female Pennsylvania impressionists known as the Philadelphia Ten. And finally, Moravian's collection by the artist Walter Schofield is the largest and most comprehensive collection in the country.
