Lyme Art Colony
In Lyme: 1905-1942
Born in Philadelphia, Vesin spent his early adult life in the dry goods business of New York City. Vezin did not take up painting until after his 40th year, and began to study at the Art Students League with a number of instructors including Frank Vincent DuMond. As his talent developed, he gained recognition and eventually devoted himself to painting after retiring from business in 1919. During his lifetime his work was widely exhibited at a number of museums including the National Academy of Design, the Carnegie Institute, the Pennsyvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Chicago Art Institute. An active member of the Lyme Art Colony, Vezin frequently exhibited his work at the Lyme Art Association after 1905. He also served as president of the Art Students League from 1911 to 1915 and in 1914 became president of the important Salmagundi CLub, where a number of Lyme artists were members.
Vezin was well-known for his views of New York City, but despite his attraction to the New York skyline, Vezin, like other members of the Lyme Art Colony, were drawn to the flower gardens of Miss Florence and the landscape of Old Lyme.
