Chapter 11
Old Lyme Art Colony

Old Lyme was a place where [artists] could work amidst a group of close friends and belong to a community of landscape painters who shared an appreciation for an intimate, almost reverential approach to nature, based upon an equal measure of first-hand observation and regard for the spirit of the landscape.

Jeffrey W. Andersen

There are few towns in Southern Connecticut more charming and quiet today than Old Lyme. It is the home of many artists, working for the most part in the styles of past days.

Robin Richman ( 1966)

Old Lyme, a tiny village on the south-central seacoast of Connecticut, was a once-prosperous shipbuilding town in serious economic decline when artists began arriving at the turn of the century and turned it into one of America's best- known art colonies. In a more recent description by art historian Robin Richman:

Old Lyme lies quietly and unpretentiously in the New England landscape. It is washed by Long Island Sound to the south, and the Connecticut River forms a sinuous border to the west. Broad meadows, encircled by low hills, form the northeast boundary. The terrain is patterned by a network of gently flowing rivers--the Lieutenant, the Duck and the Black Hall. White pillared Federal Houses majestically line its main street, shaded by stately elms and oaks. The mood of Old Lyme was then, and still is, one of Edwardian complacency and Wilsonian idealism. 1
