The Florence Griswold Museum, in Old Lyme, Connecticut, is the opening venue for "Impressionist Giverny: American Painters in France, 1885-1915, Selections From the Terra Foundation for American Art," an exhibition of more than 50 oil paintings featuring Impressionist masterworks by American expatriates. Attracted by the presence of the Impressionist master Claude Monet, an international community of artists flocked to the small French village of Giverny in the late 1880s and continued to settle there through World War I; more than 70 percent of the visitors were American. Among the artists featured in this exhibition are Theodore Robinson, John Leslie Breck, Mary Fairchild MacMonnies, and Willard Metcalf.

Karl Anderson of Westport CT studied in Giverny, France as part of this group. He painted several paintings of our family, "Boy and Goat", Sisters, Girl in Bonnet, Lily Pads, my Father and his Sister. I have never seen them and was wondering if they will be part of this show? Ann Urciuoli Allard
