This sketchbook contains thirty-one undated drawings in graphite and ink of Noank and Lyme, Connecticut subjects.
Beginning in 1899, Ranger became a leading member of the artists’ colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut, where a group of painters influenced by the Barbizon and impressionist styles gathered in the summer at the home of Florence Griswold. Ranger later acquired a country home in Noank, on Long Island Sound, near New London, Connecticut, and did much of his sketching there.
