In Hopper’s footsteps

The Artist may no longer be present, but his house still is… here on the dunes of Fisher Beach, in Truro.

The house is a private property, not open to the public, but the walk on the beach was great, and the chance to follow in Hopper’s footsteps and see the landscape where he lived and worked for so many years (if you can ignore some the newer constructions along the way, that is), was one of the most inspiring moments of our Cape Cod trip.

At home with Hopper

Where he was born and grew up, drew his first impressions and sketches, pictures that were imprinted on his memory working to make him the artist he became.

On the ground floor, an additional exhibition of works by Alastair Noble, inspired by Hopper’s boyhood fascination with yachts and other sailing boats; an installation of paper boats and poetic messages, a weightless flotilla flowing across the gallery.
