Located in the Monadnock and Lake Sunapee regions of New Hampshire, Dublin and Cornish have offered endless artistic inspiration for nearly 150 years. Attracting artists such as Abbott Henderson Thayer (1849-1921) and Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), these locations became magnets to many of America's greatest artists. Today many prominent painters still journey to these locations. The monumental granite of Mount Monadnock and the lush pastures of the Connecticut River Valley continue to inspire a new generation. New Hampshire Summer Colonies takes the reader on a journey through 150 years of American painting.Ahern, Maureen is the author of 'New Hampshire Summer Colonies: Dublin and Cornish', published 2007 under ISBN 9780979201493 and ISBN 0979201497.
