"Duveneck’s “school” in Gloucester was always somewhat peripatetic, but seems to have been centered on Rocky Neck, a peninsula on the eastern side of Gloucester Harbor. Over time his school evolved into the Rocky Neck Art Colony, which bills itself as one of the oldest continuously operating art colonies in the United States. Not surprisingly, many of the most notable American impressionist landscapes of Gloucester were painted from the high ridge just above Rocky Neck, known as Banner Hill in tribute to the local Wonson family, which raised a flagpole flying the American flag there at the outbreak of the Civil War. The site provides panoramic vistas of Smith Cove and Rocky Neck, the main channel of Gloucester Harbor, and downtown Gloucester, with its white church spire and the red brick Victorian spire of the town hall. The yellow pier shed that appears in many of these impressionist panoramas of Gloucester was owned by John Wonson."
