Nelson Cooke White was born in Waterford, CT and studied painting with his father, Henry Cooke White. He came late to Old Lyme, accomplishing several fine marine and coastal views from 1950 to 1985. At the apex of career, he exhibited at both the Chicago Art Institute and the National Academy. White’s boundless energy extended beyond his art. He served as a trustee of the Lyman Allen Museum and the Wadsworth Athenaeum, in addition to writing The Life and Art of J. Frank Currier. His son, Nelson White, carried on the family tradition and became a noted painter residing in Old Lyme.
