Visually stunning, Call of the Coast: Art Colonies of New England explores the importance of place in the development of early-20th century impressionist Connecticut and modernist Maine within the visual traditions of the New England coast. The creative communities that grew up around these landscapes became an inspiration for artists and art students, among them Edward Hopper, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, Rockwell Kent, and George Bellows.

Featuring approximately 80 works, each painting is paired with extensive interpretative text and includes documentary photography to provide historical context for the artworks. This full-color catalogue contains essays by Thomas Denenberg, chief curator at the Portland Museum of Art; Susan Danly, curator of graphics, photography, and contemporary art at the Portland Museum of Art; and Amy Kurtz Lansing, curator at the Florence Griswold Museum.
