A fellow blogger by the name of Charley Parker (not the Charley Parker) has tagged Garber as a "Romantic Realist." Others have simply assigned Garber two separate styles, which he, consciously or unconsciously, appears to have employed interchangeably. In that regard, it would seem that Garber was more like Manet, than Monet. His exquisite little portrait of his daughter, Tanis (below) is true to Garber's Impressionist yearnings in every respect, yet his figure bears all the "Romantic Realism" traits Parker so aptly identifies. Like Manet, Garber seems to have been an Impressionist only when he wanted to be.
