The Boston Globe wrote in 1916...

 

Biggest Art Colony in the World at Provincetown



" A little world of its own - distinct in nearly every way from the real and historic Provincetown, but vitalizing in an artistic way all that the old town stands for, and all that is has stood for since the first Pilgrim landed here, in 1620, and the compact for freedom and independence was signed in the cabin of the Mayflower in this harbor."



..."The sun doesn't always shine in Provinetown, however. There are stomy days, and gray days, and drab days, but these are also interesting to the painters"... "These is a distinctive quality in the light of the place at all times, so that nearly every phase of the weather has a particular color charm for the painter."
