About

Eugene Higgins had an illustrious career as an artist in Paris and in New York. He began to spend his summers in Lyme, Connecticut in 1924 and was a member of the Lyme Art Association, enjoying the afternoon tea receptions with his wife, singer Anita Rio, and family. In printmaking and drawing, as well as in oils, Higgins rarely strayed from melancholy themes. He established his reputation painting farm workers and itinerants, as did Jean Millet 75years before. In his paintings, warm earth tones and shadowy backgrounds dominated. By the late 1920's he occasionally introduced brighter colors and more cheerful subjects (perhaps an influence of his summer home in Pleasant Valley in Lyme). In 1921, Higgins was elected an associate of the National Academy of Design, and thereafter his paintings were honored regularly at the Academy and elsewhere. He frequently exhibited at such institutions as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery, as well as at several New York City galleries. His numerous memberships included the National Arts Club, the Society of American Etchers and the Salmagundi Club.
