View from the Head­lands: Har­ri­son Cady

Where Boston - - THE GUIDE -

Among the many great rea­sons to head up to Cape Ann this sum­mer and fall, from the whale watch­ing to the water­side restau­rants, is this ex­cel­lent ex­hi­bi­tion at the Cape Ann Mu­seum, shin­ing a light on the work of il­lus­tra­tor and artist, Har­ri­son Cady (1877-1970). Known for his syn­di­cated Peter Rab­bit car­toon strip, and char­ac­ters such as Jerry Muskrat and Chippy Chipmunk, Cady made his sum­mer home in nearby Rock­port at a prop­erty called “The Head­lands” and worked in a stu­dio known as “the silo.” His land­scapes and har­bor scenes from the 1920s and 1930s are not just works of art, they’re also his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments.
