No artist ever painted sea and sky as luminously as Fitz Henry Lane of Gloucester. His canvases glow even more brightly in the museum’s renovated galleries, which augment Lane’s oil paintings with his drawings and lithographs. Upstairs, two small ships and a first-order Fresnel lens help cele­brate Cape Ann’s fishing and maritime history. BEST MARITIME ART

The iconic Gloucester fisherman isn’t the only townsman to owe his living to the sea. This gem of a small museum houses the world’s best collection of maritime paintings by Fitz Henry Lane (1804-65), some Cape Ann scenes by Winslow Homer, and a whole slew of seascapes and shore images by Stuart Davis, John Sloan, and other American Modernists.
