About the artist
The son of attorney Thomas Jefferson Ramsdell, Frederick came from Manistee, Michigan. He refined his artistic skills at the Art Students League of New York, studying under James Carroll Beckwith, and furthered his education under R. Collin, possibly Arthur George Collins, in Paris. He showcased his work at the Paris Salon from 1891-1898. After spending time in France and Italy, he moved back to America and made Connecticut his home. He bought two properties there; one in Lyme on Grassy Hill Road in 1907, and another in Old Lyme on Sill Lane in 1915.
In 1907, Ramsdell joined the Impressionist Old Lyme Art Colony. He also became a member of the Lyme Art Association, where he exhibited his work from 1907 till his death in 1915.
