Connecticut was an important creative seedbed of American Impressionism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With art colonies of talented painters taking up residence in Cos Cob and at Florence Griswold's boarding house in Old Lyme, many of the great Impressionist scenes painted during those years are scenes of Connecticut. Because of this rich heritage, many museums in the state are now home to Impressionist masterworks. Begin with a look at the Connecticut Art Trail, a tour that will take you to 21 museums and historic sites throughout the state. As you make your travel plans, here are a few key sites for Connecticut Impressionists to put on your list:
