Gloucester inspired more than 110 art works by artist Edward Hopper. A painter, printmaker, and illustrator, Hopper traveled by train from his home and studio in New York City to Gloucester, with his first visit in 1912. His signature emotive and elegant style, already evident in his prints, crystallized with his summer visits during the 1920s.
There are six Hopper sites near this house at Flannagan’s Square; some depicted by other artists, including Stuart Davis and John Sloan. Look for guided walking tours of the sites in Gloucester that inspired Hopper.
