New Ipswich Historical Society invites the public to its summer program: The Life & Works of New Ipswich Artists: William Jurian and Lee Lufkin Kaula by Professor Carol J. G. Scollans

When: August 18 at 6:30p.m. Where: New Ipswich Library (6 Main Street) For many years William J. Kaula and Lee Lufkin Kaula were summer residents of Bank Village in New Ipswich. Both became critically acclaimed New England artists, though they are less well-known today. William focused on landscapes, and Lee explored a variety of genres, but her portraits of women and children were the standouts. William, born in 1871, met Lee while studying art in France, and they married in 1902. Unlike many artist pairings, they enjoyed a stable and productive partnership for over a half century. After a successful career, William died in 1953, and is buried in New Ipswich Central Cemetery. Lee, born in 1865, passed away four years later and is buried next to her husband. Scholar, curator, author, and New Ipswich resident, Carol Scollans has been a Senior Lecturer II in Art History for the Art and Art History Department at the University of Massachusetts/Boston for over 25 years and specializes in the study of American Art and in particular, art, artists, and collectors from Boston. She has lectured both in the U.S. and abroad on French and American 19th and 20th century painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and photography. Her publications include works for the University of Massachusetts press, The New Hampshire Historical Society, Oxford University press and The University of New Hampshire. She has also been involved in numerous curatorial projects, including most recently Melissa Shook (University Hall Gallery and Grossman Gallery University of Massachusetts, Boston) in 2022; Distinguished Members Exhibition (J.A. McNeil Whistler Museum of American Art) in 2019, and The Life and Works of William Jurian and Lee Lufkin Kaula (D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts in Springfield, MA) in 2018
