Exploring American Impressionism in Connecticut
May 30-June 2, 2018




The lovely town of Hartford, Connecticut  served as the base-point for a broad exploration of a richly historic region. Hartford is home to the Wadsworth Atheneum, which is the oldest continually operating public art museum in the United States and just a short walk from our hotel.  From there we ventured to nearby Farmington to see the Impressionist masterpieces at the Hill-Stead Museum, the Florence Griswold House which was the center of the Old Lyme art colony, and New Britain, where we visited the first museum in the country strictly dedicated to American art. We  also visited the Yale University Art Gallery and Prints and Drawings collection at the Yale Mellon Center, as well as travelled North to the Springfield Museums of Art and Smith College collection in Massachusetts.
