Gloucester Harbor

Thinking about Gloucester, MA , the oldest working harbor in the United States, and the Rocky Neck Art Colony 1850-1950. Some of the most influential artists of our time painted the rugged topography, the hard-working fisherman, and the fishing or whaling fleets; including Fitz Hugh Lane, Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, and Charles Gruppe. Traveling the Annisquam River to Gloucester Harbor makes one appreciate the vital influence Rocky Neck Art Colony had on art history.

I painted ” Dink”, “Orange Tangled Bouys”, and “Rounding Ten Pound Island” after a visit to Annisquam.
