A Tale of Two Treasures: Horace Pippin’s Birmingham Meeting House in Summertime and Birmingham Hill Preserve
Join Museum curator Audrey Lewis and the Brandywine Conservancy's Sheila Fleming, Manager for Municipal Assistance, as they explore two of Brandywine’s great treasures: Horace Pippin’s painting, Birmingham Meeting House in Summertime and the Birmingham Hill Preserve.
Pippin, a West Chester native and World War I veteran, created four versions of this compelling subject, which may have had personal significance for the artist. Built in the mid-1700s, the Birmingham Meeting House is located within sight of Birmingham Hill, the location of some of the fiercest fighting during the Battle of Brandywine and now a Brandywine Conservancy Preserve.
