Edward H Barnard

Edward Herbert Barnard found inspiration for his paintings in Connecticut’s landscapes. He specialized in portraiture and figural works until he encountered those of French impressionist painter Claude Monet. According to Barnard, “it is the power to paint out-of-door light which Monet has shown us that makes it so fascinating and lures us out of our stuffy studios.” After moving from France to Mystic, Connecticut, Barnard embraced his new hometown and the atmospheric quality found along the state’s shoreline.
