Lost Landscape Revealed: Childe Hassam and The Red Mill, Cos Cob Exhibition January 16 – March 28, 2021

In August 2020 the Greenwich Historical Society made a significant addition to its collection of Cos Cob art colony paintings with the acquisition of the The Red Mill, Cos Cob by American Impressionist painter F. Childe Hassam. The Red Mill, Cos Cob presents a view across the Cos Cob Harbor toward the Palmer & Duff shipyard, once located on a peninsula in the Mianus River opposite the Holley boarding house – now the Bush-Holley House.

Painted during Hassam’s first visit to the Holley House in the autumn of 1896, the canvas has been in private hands since the artist’s death in 1935 and rarely exhibited. It will be debuted to the public in an intimate focus exhibition opening at the Greenwich Historical Society in January 2021.

Drawing from the Historical Society’s collections the exhibition will offer a glimpse into the past, exploring how Hassam and fellow artists captured the fleeting character of Cos Cob’s Lower Landing in the nineteenth century. Although the shipyard and its sloops and schooners have disappeared from the landscape, through paintings, photographs and artifacts this one-time busy mercantile district will be brought to life.
