Evocative skyscapes of luminous deep space emerge from shifting light and veils of color. About Sheila’s work, artist Stephen Westfall writes, "We have the concurrent sensations of looking at intensifications of light effects that occur at sunrise and sunset while also seeing color as a mineral experience....You'll watch meteorological weather become emotional weather."

The King, The Duke & The Rothschilds: Edwardian Country Homes in the Era of Downton Abbey®;

Education/Lectures

Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams Street, New London, , 06320

5:30-7:30 p.m., presented by Curt DiCamillo, Architectural Historian.
This lecture will examine some of the greatest country houses of England that existed during this magical twilight of the early 20th century. From Highclere Castle (famous as the setting for Downton Abbey) to Blenheim Palace, the magnificent home of the Dukes of Marlborough, to the glorious Rothschild houses, there has never been anything quite like the splendor of the grand Edwardian country houses. Jaw-dropping by any measure, these houses were off the charts when the art they contained was factored into the equation. This serious taste for bling was transmitted to the newly-wealthy American plutocrats, who were decorating their great townhouses on Fifth Avenue in New York City, as well as their country houses and Newport “cottages.” As with so much in history, one trend influences another, leaving for us today the residue of this faded but glorious time. Reception to follow the presentation.

$10 per lecture members / $15 per lecture non-members. RSVP’s required, please contact the Museum at: 860.443.2545 ext. 129.
