Artist Biography

William Van de Velde Bonfield, an American artist who was most active in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, is best known for his quaint winter snow scenes. Son of engraver and marine painter George Robert Bonfield (1805–1898), the younger Bonfield was named after Dutch marine painter Willem Van de Velde the Younger (1633–1707).

Bonfield most often painted quiet, picturesque scenes of figures and buildings in the snow. His works are in the permanent collections
