The Lyman Allyn Art Museum Acquires Work by Jan Cunningham

We are pleased to announce that the Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London, CT has added a drawing (right) by Jan Cunningham to their permanent collection. The work is one of several pieces of modern and contemporary French and American art added to the museum from the collection of Joan Rich Baer of Hamden, CT. 


The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is located in New London, Connecticut and was founded in 1926 by Lyman Allyn's daughter Harriet Upson Allyn. The collection includes European and non-Western art as well as American fine and decorative art, 17th-century European works on paper, 19th-century American paintings, and contemporary art. The museum also conducts educational programs. 

Lyman Allyn's permanent collection consists of approximately 10,000 objects. Much of this collection was developed by the Museum's first Director Winslow Ames, who acquired works dating from the 16th through the 19th centuries. It includes works by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, as well as works by Frederic Leighton, François Boucher, Nicholas Poussin, Gustave Courbet, Charles LeBrun, and Tiepolo. Featured artists include Rembrandt Peale, Benjamin West, Gilbert Stuart, John Trumbull, Thomas Cole, Frederick Edwin Church, and Albert Bierstadt.[
