Robert Hogg Nisbet, NA (1879 – 1961)

With the opening of the Florence Griswald museum, many art collectors have re-discovered the Old Lyme summer art colony known for the great impressionist painters, Childe Hassam and Willard Metcalf. Robert Nisbet spent time in Old Lyme and was a student of Metcalf. He is known for his lyrical light and a meticulous definition of form. It is a privilege to have a number of his works on view.

Robert Hogg Nisbet is noted for his landscape, figure, genre, and etching work. He is associated with Connecticut artist colonies including Old Lyme.

A Rhode Island native, Nisbet studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and in New York at the Art Students League with Willard Leroy Metcalf and Frank DuMond. He completed his training in Europe under Henry Snell.
