About This Item

Kristian Davies

Jutting out into the Atlantic, 25 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts, is Cape Ann. For more than 150 years painters have visited the quaint and rustic towns that make up this unique area including Gloucester, Rockport, Annisquam, Magnolia, Essex, and Lanesville. Cape Ann has been the host to many of the very best, most celebrated artists in America, from nineteenth-century greats Fitz Hugh Lane, Winslow Homer, and William Morris Hunt, to Impressionists Childe Hassam, John H. Twachtman, and Willard Metcalf, to Ashcan painters and Modernists, Edward Hopper, John Sloan, Stuart Davis, and Marsden Hartley.

The Cape Ann area has for years offered artists a superb range of subject matter such as majestic ships of old Gloucester Harbor, crashing seascapes, sandy beaches, sculpted granite quarries, and woodlands that present a different scene with every changing season.

Artists of Cape Ann: A 150 Year Tradition features 65 painters from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, that represent a diverse range of styles and techniques, each with full-color examples of their work and an informative biography.

Many pictures in this book have been obtained from private collectors and have been reproduced here for the first time. This book is one of the first of its kind to offer such an insightful and beautiful collection of artists of Cape Ann.
