Long Out of Sight, Hassam's Masterpiece Goes on View

In 1905, the father of American Impressionism, Childe Hassam, painted June, a picture of three nude women among the blooms of a pink mountain laurel alongside the Lieutenant River in Old Lyme, Connecticut. Hassam himself called the seven-foot-square painting a “masterpiece.” Now, Diane Scarponi reports in Newsday, the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme has restored the painting and is exhibiting it after almost sixty years out of public view.
