In the years between 1912, when Edward Hopper made his first visit to Gloucester, and 1923 when he returned, the city grew in every imaginable way boasting 40 hotels, 1000 cottages for rent, opportunities for golf, swimming and walking, and a growing number of venues for looking at and purchasing art. Explore this important time in Gloucester’s past and learn what Edward Hopper and Josephine Nivison experienced when they choose the city as their summer vacation spot.

About the Lecture Series
This collection of programs by leading scholars is being presented in conjunction with Edward Hopper & Cape Ann, celebrating one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. This once in a generation exhibition offers a fresh look at Edward Hopper’s pivotal summer on Cape Ann in 1923, when he began painting watercolors outdoors with the encouragement of fellow artist and his future wife, “Jo” Nivison Hopper, whose works will also be on view.
Edward Hopper & Cape Ann is made possible by the Whitney Museum of American Art, the major repository of the Hoppers’ artworks and lender of 28 oils, watercolors, and drawings, as well as the generous support of 27 institutional and private lenders.
