At this time, it is difficult to know if all of these people lived at the Idle Hour Artist Colony, or if they were represented by Lucy Pritchard Saywer Thompson and simply had their work exhibited at the Colony, or if they just visited the Colony.

In addition to artists; musicians, writers and actors also lived at the colony along with some interesting business people and personalities. This list is an attempt to sort through, and gather information about these people. In addition, we are starting to hear from our readers, telling us of other artists and people who once lived in the Artist Colony, their names appear in blue.

Arthur D’Dartois
Artist

23 September 2008 >>message<< 21:58 by Alma Rands My farther Arthur D’Dartois, was one of the artists living in the Colony. We spent several summers there, and occupied the stables. This was around 1938. I leared to swim in the canal in back of the buildings. I have an oil painting painted by my father, of the entrance to the estate, showing the stables, and Tack room. I was 16 years old at the time, and well remember Bill Thompson and his mother Lucy. My father’s second wife, Beth LeSeuer was the cousin of Bob LeSeuer who was also at the colony. I believe that Bob was a sports announcer on the Radio at that time. If you wish further information about my father, Arthur D’Artois, you can contact me at ARands@comcast. net. I can send you a picture of the painting, which my father made as a birthday present for me, and now hangs in my living room.
