Charles Rosen was among the first American artists to settle outside New Hope in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Like his contemporaries, Rosen painted from life, or plein-air, even in the cold of winter. His work during this time often depicts the Delaware River near his home. Later, the artist moved to another artist colony, Woodstock, New York.
