George W. Sotter (1879 – 1953) was an American painter best known for Impressionist-style works. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania[1] but eventually made his name in Philadelphia. He is also known for his work in stained glass, some of which are still installed in numerous churches. In a recent episode of Antiques Roadshow on PBS, filmed in Philadelphia, a Sotter oil painting was appraised $120,000-$180,000, much to the delight of its visibly stunned owner.[1] Sotter studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy with artist and teacher Edward Redfield, 1869-1965, member of the regional New Hope group. Later, Sotter became a member of the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University, 1910-1919.
