Luce Center Label

Frank Bicknell may have painted October Morning during one of his many stays at the artists' colony in Old Lyme, Connecticut. In a 1907 letter to Florence Griswold, who rented rooms to artists, he revealed his desire to come to the colony for both inspiration and camaraderie: "Will you stow me away somewhere in the big house about the last week in Septembre? Or the first week of Octobre at the latest? Please do not say no—Put me in the Barn if you will—but come to Lyme I must sometime this Autumn."
