Carl Schmitt’s wife Gertrude and his brother Robert enjoy the view from the back of Robert’s house in Silvermine in this photograph from the 1920s. The images shows just how open Silvermine – now covered almost entirely with dense woods – was at that time. One resident has written, “From the church spires of New Canaan to the west one could see all the way to the silver ribbon of the Sound and the misty outline of Long Island to the south.” (photograph from the Carl Schmitt Foundation archives on page 16 of Silvermine.)
Through dozens of vintage photographs the new book tells the fascinating history of Silvermine—the hamlet Carl Schmitt called home for 70 years—and its rich social, artistic, and cultural life during the heyday of the artists’ colony in the first half of the last century.
