Gloucester inspired over 90 art works by Edward Hopper. A painter, printmaker, and illustrator, Hopper first arrived here to paint in 1912. His signature emotive and elegant style, already evident in his prints, crystallized with his summer visits during the 1920s.

Many other artists painted this house at Flanagan’s square, including Stuart Davis. Take a walking tour of the sites in Gloucester that inspired Hopper’s magnificent watercolors, paintings, and prints.
