Augustus Waldeck Buhler and his family began summering in Gloucester in 1885, and in 1898 opened his first summer studio on Rocky Neck. Buhler painted portraits of local fishermen, whom he had befriended and who liked and trusted him. His best-known work is the Man at the Wheel painting, which was bought by Gorton’s and continues to be used as their trademark.
