Hopper Paintings Around Portuguese Hill Walking Tour

October 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Explore the specific sites in the area of Gloucester known as Portuguese Hill depicted by renowned American realist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions in the first decades of the 20th century. His paintings from this period capture the local landscape and architecture in a loosely rendered, light-filled style and are considered by many to be some of his finest works. Also included are watercolors painted by Josephine Nivison Hopper (1883-1968), Hopper’s wife and artist in her own right, whose work gained recognition long before her future husband’s success. Learn how this hillside neighborhood the Hoppers travelled together inspired their artwork, as well as the role the area plays in Gloucester history.

Cost is $10 CAM members / $20 nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; advance registration required.  Reserve online or call 978-283-0455 x110 or email info@capeannmuseum.org.
