Curated by Katrina Beneker.
In 1913, Gerrit Beneker (1882-1934) moved with his family to Provincetown, Massachusetts, to attend Charles Hawthorne’s Cape Cod School of Art. Under Hawthorne’s tutelage, Beneker learned more about color theory and began to paint seascapes and portraits of local characters. He was a founding member of the Provincetown Art Association and was very active in the development of the art colony.
