Lost Landscape Revealed: Childe Hassam and The Red Mill, Cos Cob
January 16 – March 28, 2021
An intimate focus exhibition celebrating the Greenwich Historical Society’s recent acquisition of a luminous 1896 canvas by American impressionist artist Childe Hassam, titled The Red Mill, Cos Cob
One of the most original artists among the American Impressionists and a member of the Ten American Painters, John Twachtman (1853-1902) created his best known work on his property in Greenwich, Connecticut, from 1889 to 1902. This exhibition catalogue focuses on a select group of Twachtman's Greenwich works: his vibrant and sensuous images in oil and pastel of flowers in the wild and in the artist's own garden as well as rare figurative images, in which Twachtman depicted his family in casual outdoor settings. Within this 104-page publication are essays by Richard J. Boyle, William H. Gerdts, John Douglass Hale, and Lisa N. Peters. Each of the twenty works in the show are illustrated in color and there are an additional eighteen color and twenty-four black and white illustrations.
The Greenwich Historical Society's mission is to preserve and interpret Greenwich history to strengthen the community’s connection to our past, to each other and to our future. All proceeds from our museum store support this mission.
