During his 1923 summer painting holiday in Gloucester, Mass., Edward Hopper transformed his practice, as he began painting in watercolor, the favorite medium of fellow artist and future wife, Josephine Nivison. Art historian, curator and museum director Elliot Bostwick Davis examines the importance of Cape Ann in shaping Hopper’s artistic vision during five summers spent there between 1912 and 1928, shedding light on the role of Nivison in her husband’s transformation.
