Renowned artiste David Dunlop takes audiences on a tour mixed with art, history and travel to look at those masterpiece paintings and the inspirations behind them.
Old Lyme was a popular artist colony at the turn of the century. It was close to New York City and Boston and offered many parallels to Giverny, France. Many of the painters who began to spend their summers in Old Lyme had also painted in Paris and Giverny, learning the new trends from
the French avant-garde. In this program David considers the new American appetite – from the 1890’s until WWI – for beautiful and hip French fashions.
