An early member of the art colony at Old Lyme, Bicknell lived there for almost forty years. He was a close friend of Florence Griswold, often staying at her boarding house. Born in Maine, Bicknell studied with Albion H. Bicknell and in Paris. He lived in New York City and in Boston, and settled in Old Lyme in 1902. He traveled extensively, painting in France, on Cape Ann and Monhegan, and in Ogunquit. He won numerous awards, exhibiting at the Boston Art Club, the Paris Salon, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the National Academy, and many more.
