Field’s followers included his protege, sculptor Robert Laurent, and painters such as Bernard Karfiol, Niles Spencer, and Yasuo Kuniyoshi, each of whom practiced a form of Yankee Modernism that translated New England folk motifs and local color scenes into the blunt, expressive, urban language of Modernism.

Call of the Coast is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated catalogue (Yale University Press, $29.95 softcover) and is a perfect example of how art museums can make their collections more meaningful by combining them in thematic context. Had the Portland Museum of Art and the Florence Griswold Museum drawn the Provincetown Art Association and Museum into the act, they really would have had the coast covered.

[Portland Museum of Art, Seven Congress Square, Portland ME, 207-775-6148. Florence Griswold Museum, 96 Lyme St., Old Lyme CT, 860-434-5542.]
