Biography from Whistler House Museum of Art:
The following, submitted March 2007, is from Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA:  Fine Art Consultant, www.pkart.com


Lucinda Britton — painter of New England landscapes — was born on May 16, 1958 and now resides and works in Windham, NH.  Primarily an oil painter, working from nature and memory, she also uses watercolor, charcoal, and pencil to create works in the American Impressionist tradition.  She began her formal art training with studio work at the Massachusetts College of Art from 1976 to 1978.  Later, from 1983 to 1988, Britton had private instruction in academic art with David Lowrey at the Fenway Studios in Boston, MA.  From 1989 to 1990, she enrolled in full-time tutelage with Paul Ingbretson at his studio on Washington Street in Boston.  This gave her a direct link to the "Golden Age" of French painting and the great painter and head of the French Academy, Jean Leon Gerome (1824-1904).  Lowrey and Ingbretson studied with R. H. (Robert Hale) Ives Gammell (1893-1981), Gammell studied with William McGregor Paxton (1869 -1941), and Paxton studied with Gerome.  This traditional academic education started in Paris and made its way to Boston, where American Impressionism originated.

Serving as the Artist in Residence at the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA from 1983 to 1987 and then from 1991 to 1992, Britton was able to paint where the young James Abbott McNeill Whistler took his first steps.

In 1997, Lucinda Britton's name and work were entered into the Archives on Women Artists in the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  Susan Fisher Sterling, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, at NMWA stated in a letter dated September 23, 1997: "In recognition of Ms. Britton's achievement we would like to establish a file in her name and we have forwarded the material to our museum's Archives on Women Artists in the NMWA Library and Research Center..."

Britton's exhibitions include the Whistler House Museum of Art in 1986, 1996, and 2006; the Guido Gallery of Art in Boston in 1988; the Boston City Club for Women on Beacon Street in Boston in 1989; the Heritage Art Gallery in Alexandria, VA in 1989; and the Frederick Gallery in Concord, MA in 1992.
