Winter in the Pottery Shop likely depicts one of the many studios in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where American Impressionist Arthur Meltzer spent his early career. Winter allowed Meltzer to experiment with pleasing effects in form and color, while offering a peaceful image of both industry and nature. Impressionists often favored benign images of nature that offered a metaphorical reprieve from the bustling modern world.
