评论: He was one of the most popular landscapes painters of Philadelphia during the late 19th century. His early works were chiefly scenes of the Lehigh, Susquehana, and Wissihickon Rivers of Pennsylvania, and were in great demand. Before 1860, he also exhibited landscapes of New York and New England, and even some Cuban scenes. By the mid 1870s, he turned increasingly to shoreline views with yachting, painting prolifically in watercolor from Cape May, NJ to Narragansett, RI. Wealthy and admired, he entertained in a grand style in his opluent Philadelphia home, surrounded by an extensive collection of antique furniture, china, and decorative arts. Signature note: His signature, although often loose and uneven, usually appears as "Edmund D. Lewis" but can appear fully spelled out or as "E.D. Lewis."
