Robert Vonnoh, In the Connecticut Hills
MediumOil on canvas
Credit LineMuseum purchase, 2020
Dimensions24 1/4 x 20 1/8 in.
Vonnoh and his second wife, sculptor Bessie Potter, summered at the artist colonies in Old Lyme and Cos Cob, Connecticut. These and other stimulating communities in unspoiled rural locations fostered the development of American Impressionism. Vonnoh may have produced this moody view of a hazy day in the Connecticut hills on one of these summer sojourns, before his return to Grez-sur-Loing in 1907. He died in France in 1933 and is buried in Nice.
