The Cape Cod Museum of Art's 2,000-piece collection of the works of more than 500 artists tells a fascinating story. This book highlights 122 artists and their works, which are included in this fine collection that has been built over three decades. Artists have had a rich tradition on Cape Cod, including the long-standing art colony in Provincetown that has drawn thousands of artists to this grand land. On the occasion of its 35th anniversary, the museum celebrates these artists who created pristine realism, impressionistic landscapes, insightful portraits, luminous still lifes, modernist paintings, and sculptures, abstract adventures, and dramatic photographs, drawings, and prints. Along with the images, biographies of artists, who represent the major art movements of the last 150 years, give insight into their remarkable talents and accomplishments, and a perspective on the creative culture on Cape Cod.
Deborah Forman is the author of Perspectives on the Provincetown Art Colony and Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: Images of Land and Sea. She has interviewed hundreds of artists for her books and articles on Cape Cod and New England.
