August 21, 2009 | American impressionism, in particular Connecticut impressionism, is the focus of the current exhibition at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut, which has recently been promised the major gift of the collection of its trustee Clement C. Moore. The collection, which will be on view through October 18, includes major works by notable members of the Lyme Art Colony, including Childe Hassam, Willard Leroy Metcalf, and William Chadwick that have never been shown publicly.
Lyme in Mind: The Clement C. Moore Collection was organized by Amy Kurt Lansing, the curator at the Florence Griswold Museum, who also wrote the accompanying catalogue.
