Thomas Nason Wood Engraving 'Old Lyme Church'

Thomas NASON

Old Lyme Church, wood engraving, 1956, Edition of 100; image 10 1/2 x 8 inches.

THOMAS WILLOUGHBY NASON (1885 - 1971) was born and raised in Massachusetts, north of Boston, graduated from Tufts and entered into the business world, but in the early 1920s, he taught himself wood engraving and printmaking. In 1931 Nason and his wife bought and restored an abandoned farm in Lyme, Connecticut, where over the succeeding four decades he produced a large body of wonderfully detailed and evocative views of the countryside and villages of New England. Depicted here is the Congregational Church in his hometown.


Thank you for viewing my prints. I do not presently have a website but hope to have one online soon, at which point I’ll begin uploading some of the thousands of prints in my inventory.
