We took a trip into town on a Sunday afternoon in order to see this artist's work only to be disappointed since we were told most of his pieces were in Philadelphia! Good for them - bad for us. We saw a few of Demuth's early work and seeing that this museum used to be his home was interesting. He even painted what he could see from outside his window. There is a wonderful brick walk/patio garden between the buildings (on the way to the entrance) with an old fashioned water pump (that works). Gorgeous flowers too. Landscape architects can appreciate this area.
However, we saw more great works by the guest artist, Barry Root (than we did Demuth), who has done hundreds of illustrations for children's books . His style is similar to the art in the Babar series of books and quite popular since most of the pieces for sale were sold.
We probably spent an hour or so there, donated $2 each and looked a little at the very small gift 'wall' where notecard prints and posters of some of Demuth's work were for sale. This a multi-level old, historic home with narrow stairwells, so no handicap accessibility.
Not sure how many pieces they have from Demuth, but personally, more of his work should stay within this museum to be displayed rather than on exhibition.
Tip: Go into Lancaster city on a Sunday and you will not have to 'feed the meter' for parking.
