Title is taken from Memorial Exhibition.

George Herdle was one of the most versatile and influential leaders of Rochester’s arts community around the turn of the twentieth century. In addition to being a fine landscape painter, he was president of the Rochester Art Club for nearly two decades and, in 1913, he became the first director of the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester.

Herdle’s legacy is visible in the building and collections that surround you, as well as in the tradition of connoisseurship and artistic vitality that he transmitted to his two daughters, Gertrude Herdle Moore and Isabel C. Herdle. Gertrude took over at the Gallery as director after her father’s untimely death, and Isabel worked by her side as curator and associate director for many years. The family was honored by the naming of the Herdle Fountain Court on the second floor of the Gallery.
