Watercolor, 17” x 29 ¼”, 28” x 40” framed, signed lower right

Hendershot is known best for his paintings of coastal Maine and rural Pennsylvania—the regions he knows best, and which hold special meaning for him. This watercolor was a centerpiece of the 2004 exhibition, A Tradition, at the Chadds Ford Gallery in Chadds Ford, PA. In Hendershot’s words, “The building is the Gideon Gilpin House, built of local stone in 1745 and used by General Lafayette as his quarters before the Battle of the Brandywine…The house is a tradesman’s dwelling or Penn Plan house, meaning that the floor plan follows the layout suggested by William Penn for workman’s dwellings.”
