of Holicong. Sotter, who occasionally produced seascapes derived from visits to Rockport, Massachusetts, was Particularly interested in painting subtle night winter scenes around New Hope.

Robert Spencer ( 1879-1931), who settled near New Hope in 1909, was instrumental in the 1916 formation of the New Hope Group, which helped promote the landscapes of several local artists in traveling exhibitions. Spencer, originally from Harvard, Nebraska, studied in New York City with William Merritt Chase, * Frank Vincent DuMond, and * Robert Henri, and later with * Daniel Garber, one of the New Hope artists. Unlike others of the New Hope art colony, Spencer found inspiration in the local architecture instead of the local landscape, producing works depicting grist mills, cotton mills and crowded tenement buildings. His wife, Margaret Fulton Spencer ( 1892-?), achieved wide recognition as an artist.
