This tour starts in the Cape Ann Museum’s newly reinstalled Fitz Henry Lane Gallery, then continues with a walk down to the Lane House overlooking Gloucester’s working waterfront. The Museum is fortunate to have the world’s single largest collection of works by Lane, America’s premier marine painter of the mid-19th century. On view in the gallery are drawings, lithographs and oil paintings, all preserved and displayed in the town in which they were created. Recent improvements to the Lane Gallery bring the space more in line with the virtual resource Fitz Henry Lane Online, giving visitors a broader appreciation of the artist’s amazing talents. After viewing the Gallery, the tour will move on to Lane’s house, otherwise known as “the Stone Jug,” giving participants the chance to walk in the artist’s shoes. 

Tours are held rain or shine. All participants must wear a face mask and dogs are not allowed on Museum walks. Cost is $10 CAM members / $20 nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; advance registration required. Reserve online or call 978-283-0455 x10 or email info@capeannmuseum.org.
