Exploring American Impressionism in Connecticut
May 30-June 2, 2018
This trip is now full with a waiting list



The lovely town of Hartford, Connecticut will serve 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 will venture 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 will visit the first museum in the country strictly dedicated to American art. We will also visit the Yale University Art Gallery and Prints and Drawings collection at the Yale Mellon Center, as well as travel North to the Springfield Museums of Art and Smith College collection in Massachusetts. This is your opportunity to see a wealth of Impressionism and other art forms in a few days, all through the expert lens of our own Timothy Standring, and we look forward to sharing it with you!
