During the Victorian era, a few trail-blazing women chose to go against the grain and study to become a professional painter.  One such accomplished and diverse woman was Newark, NJ’s Matilda Browne [1869-1947].  With the first solo exhibition dedicated to Browne in more than eight decades, the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT, presents new research and approximately 50 works, many never before scene publicly, in Matilda Browne: Idylls of Farm and Garden from February 10 to May 28, 2017.  Guest curated by one of our favorite art historians, the insightful, Susan G. Larkin, Ph.D.  Admission: $10 Adults, children under 12 free.
