of information. The Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick, Maine, acquired Mygatt’s Stormy Sunset, Ridgefield, Connecticut (1915), in 1973. The art dealers Helmut and Barbara von Zitzwitz purchased another group of his paintings at an auction in Vermont in 1990 and exhibited them the following year at the Riverdale Gallery in The Bronx. This event, the first public exhibition of Mygatt’s work since 1919, comprised twenty-seven oil paintings, twelve etchings, and one watercolor. A favorable review of the exhibition in the New York Times was accompanied by illustrations of two small oil paintings, Trees Reflected in a Stream (figure 4) and Trees in a Field, and an etching entitled New York Street Scene.2 Mygatt’s undated House and a Figure in a Field (figure 5) was included in the exhibition Art in Connecticut: The Impressionist Years that was organized by the William Benton Museum of Art of the University of Connecticut in Storrs in 1993.3 Barbara von Zitzwitz held a second exhibition of the artist’s work at her gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut, in 1996.
