Cos cob art colony


A lively colony of artists between 1890 to 1920 and located at Cos Cob, which was a section of Greenwich, Connecticut. There American Impressionism took shape under the direction of John Twachtman, Childe Hassam, Theodore Robinson, and J. Alden Weir. Through association with younger artists in Cos Cob, these older men passed on their techniques and style. Source: Susan Larkin, 'The Cos Cob Art Colony', "American Art Review", 2/2001.
