Exhibition: Fresh Fields: American Impressionist Landscapes From The Florence Griswold Museum

Tuesday, Oct 27, 2020 from 10:00am to 4:00pm


Fresh Fields is a celebration of the Museum’s most beloved landscape paintings created by Impressionist artists who visited Old Lyme. The selection highlights major recent acquisitions, such as Childe Hassam’s Apple Trees in Bloom, Old Lyme (1904), and emphasize ongoing research about our landscape that informed development of the Artists’ Trail. Paintings, drawings, archival materials, and photographs will shed light on the history and ecology of Old Lyme, which made it a gathering place for artists. The exhibition also calls upon the knowledge and viewpoints of outside experts to build interdisciplinary understanding. In addition to our own curators and art history scholars, contributors will include an ecologist, members of the local Native American community, and experts on women’s history and African-American history. Fresh Fields relies on those with expertise in these areas to help create a more complete understanding of the human history, culture, and values that shaped these Impressionist landscapes.
