1943-1945Milton Avery spent his final summers in Gloucester.People and Communities, Arts and Culture, Notable People, Art

At the time, Avery had a New York dealer, the Valentine Dudensing Gallery. He was able to afford more frequent and further travel, but his three 1940s summers here were especially productive and a welcome break from his new New York pressures. Avery was a friend and colleague of the Abstract Expressionists but maintained his commitment to representation. Avery was enormously important to several generations of artists and produced some of the most resonant and beloved images in American art history.
