Wilson Irvine, N.A. American. 1869-1936.

A Hazy Summer's Day: Old Lyme. c. 1920. Oil on panel. 24 x 27 1/8 (framed 31 x 33 1/8). Signed, lower left. $12,000.

In 1914, when he was 45, that Irvine moved his family from Chicago to Old Lyme, Connecticut, and become part of the famed Florence Griswold circle, now recognized as the "American Barbizon," at the hub of American Impressionism. Irvine is best known for his mastery of light and texture — a 1998 exhibit of his work was called Wilson Henry Irvine and the Poetry of Light. To capture subtle effects of light, Irvine often painted en plein air — wearing his trademark cap, knickers, and goatee, with his easel and his paints set up in the field. He was noted for his renderings of hazy summer days, as exemplified by this painting.
