Two weeks ago I explained how Florence Griswold took in artists as boarders in her large home in Old Lyme at the turn of the last century. Before long there were so many artists working in the area that they came to be known as the Lyme Art Colony.
Miss Griswold permitted her favorite artists to paint panels for her dining room. Here you see a small number of the painted panels.
The rooms are dimly lit to protect the paintings and only hand-held, no-flash photography is permitted. This is darker and less sharp than I would like, but the museum is so interesting that I still want to show it to you.
