An introduction to the work of lesser-known Modernist James Britton with a comprehensive exhibition of paintings, drawings and woodcuts from all phases of his career. Born in Hartford, Britton divided his time between Connecticut, New York City and Long Island: for decades he passed monthly through New London on his trips between his Connecticut homes and Sag Harbor on Long Island via the New London ferry. Featured are landscapes of Connecticut painted in the 1910s through the 1930s, family memorabilia including his palette and paint cans, historic photographs, and illustrated diaries affording glimpses of the life of a Connecticut resident from times past.
