The Greenwich Historical Society is offering us a private presentation: ‘Revealing a Lost Shipyard: Childe Hassam and The Red Mill, Cos Cob’
Join Maggie Dimock, Greenwich Historical Society Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, for an illustrated lecture on renowned American Impressionist Childe Hassam and his ties to Cos Cob. Learn about the thriving art colony that grew around the 18th century boardinghouse run by the Holley Family and delve into the story behind one of Hassam’s earliest paintings, The Red Mill, Cos Cob. The Red Mill, Cos Cob depicts the distinctive red-painted buildings of the Palmer & Duff shipyard, where beginning in 1858 many of the fastest and best-known wooden sloops and schooners to sail on the Long Island Sound were built.
