Artists in the CollectionCollections

The Griswold House and the Lyme Art Colony were at their most prominent between 1900 and 1920.

During that time, dozens of artists, including many leading figures in the American art world, stayed in the Griswold House or at guesthouses in town.

From its beginnings in 1899, the Lyme Art Colony was shaped by a strongly held group identity. Calling themselves the “School of Lyme,” the first artists who came, at the urging of the colony’s founder Henry Ward Ranger, believed they were forming a new school of painting in America. In the ensuing years, as more artists came and went, the colony’s stylistic focus shifted from Tonalism to Impressionism, but its identity as an artists’ colony held fast and grew in reputation.
