The family was invited by the artist John Sloan who brought several prominent artists to Gloucester around this time.

Stuart Davis spent many summers on Cape Ann until 1934. Like Sloan, who had been his editor at The Masses, Philadelphia-born Davis was deeply affected by the Armory Show and influenced by Cubism. He went to Gloucester specifically to be with Sloan and returned almost every summer until World War II. Davis combined European and American influences in his art and was one of the most influential American artists of the first half of the twentieth century.
