Boston, MA.- “The Figurative Landscape, a Tradition in Provincetown Painting” featuring works by Edwin Dickinson, Ross Moffett, Tony Vevers and Richard Baker is on view at ACME Fine Arts in Boston from May 12th through July 2nd. This group exhibition will explore the history and tradition of figure and landscape painting on Cape Cod. The four critically acclaimed artists represented in the exhibition all have long been associated with the Outer Cape, and all have well-established national reputations. The artwork selected for the exhibition was created over the course of almost a century. Edwin Dickinson and Ross Moffett were among what is now considered the early group of artists that “discovered” Provincetown as a painter’s place. They were considered by their colleagues at the time, and are considered by art historians today, to be pioneers of modernism in the early 20th century.
