Lois au Jardin. Wilson Henry Irvine (American, 1869-1936). Oil on canvas.
It was not until he was 45 (in 1914) that Irvine packed up and moved his family to Old Lyme, Connecticut, becoming part of the famed Florence Griswold circle, now recognized as the “American Barbizon,” hub of American Impressionism. It is as an Old Lyme painter that Irvine is best remembered today.
