About the Artist
This is a work by artist Nancy Whorf.
Nancy Whorf (1930-2009) was an inventive painter, best known for her vibrant, varied scenes of the fishing village where she lived all her life on Cape Cod. She painted the town ands its memorable characters as a visual memoirist – rather than in any effort to recreate it accurately. Instead, she experimented boldly with color and recreated scenes from her memory as a child and young woman – paintings filled with festivals and gatherings, narrow lanes, waterscapes, sunsets, snowy streets and beautiful hidden gardens of her life and memory.
