By the time Charles Gruppé was in Rockport, his reputation was international. Dutch art influenced his dark work but lightened considerably in Rockport. Other artists on this Cape have had similar experiences, and Gruppé’s reputation attracted more artists here.

Emile’s style evolved into a vibrant American Impressionism associated with traditional art in Gloucester.
