Letter From the Publisher With the creation of the Cape Cod School of Art by Charles W. Hawthorne in 1899, Provincetown became the oldest continuous art colony in the United States. Throughout the years, prominent artists from all over the globe, lured by both its historic legacy and luminous light, have stopped for a day or a decade to paint its exquisite landscapes, harbor or narrow crooked streets. Many started their own schools here or mentored privately in their studios. No discussion of any famous artist is complete without reference to and recognition of those influences who came before. Alexander Von Wagner and Karl von Piloty of the Munich school were mentors to renowned American Impressionist painter William Merritt Chase. Chase, in turn, taught Charles Hawthorne. Hawthorne's teaching assistant was Henry Hensche. And the artistic lineage continues. Today in Provincetown there is no dearth of opportunity to study with prominent artists. Schools like Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown Art Association and Museum school and Cape School of Art offer classes with artists whose work is often in museums and whose dedication to teaching allows for the potential of a new generation of mentors. And so the line continues unbroken. This year, ART GUIDE is privileged to share the reminiscences of four prominent Outer Cape artists and teachers past and present - Philip Malicoat, Hilda Neily, Robery Henry and Anne Packard as they reflect on their historic mentors including Charles Hawthorne, Henry Hensche and Hans Hofmann. Enjoy!

CHARLES HAWTHORNE Charles Webster Hawthorne (1872-1930) was an American portrait and genre painter and a noted teacher who founded the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown in 1899. It was the first outdoor summer school for figure painting and grew into one of the nation’s leading art schools. Under thirty years of Hawthorne’s guidance, the school attracted some of the most talented art instructors and students in the country. Painter Philip Malicoat traveled to Provincetown in 1929 to study at the Cape Cod School of Art just two years before Hawthorne’s death.
I was one of the monitors in his studio class, and also the classes on the beach. Myself and Bruce McCain were monitors the last summer he taught. We got to know Mr. Hawthorne very well. He always had open house and we’d see him. In the studio we filled his screens with paintings before he gave his criticisms. But he was pretty sick and I think he kept pretty much to himself the last summer. He died in October 30, 1930, just a couple of months after the class was over. He had the biggest reputation of anyone. 30 | provincetownartguide.com
“Painting is just getting one spot of color in relation to another spot… Let color make form, do not make form and color it.” - Charles Hawthorne Ambrose Webster had a class. George Elmer Browne. I think they were the principal people who had classes here. Hawthorne used to go out on these trips in the spring, going around to art schools here and there around the country and do demonstrations. He came to the John Heron art school in the spring. He did a demonstration and, of course, talked somewhat about his summer class. They were large classes. Some classes had up to 125-130 people. Most of them were young people. We had one or two models on the beach everyday, in the morning and the afternoon. But they were young kids, sitting out in the sun or facing the sea. People could paint up in the class studio if they wanted to do still lifes. There was another studio down the beach, in case it rained. Hawthorne gave a demonstration on Friday mornings. Saturdays was the general criticism where everybody brought their work in and it was put on a large screen. And he’d

give a criticism for the whole class. He was a very keen observer and most of the students came out with a lot of energy to get back to painting. He always pointed out their best piece. Usually it was a build-up so they wanted to get to work, really get back to work. He was an excellent teacher--he got people moving.
He was an excellent teacher – he got people moving. - Philip Malicoat
He had people who had studied with him whom he admired very much and they didn’t paint anything like him. Dickinson is one of them. Matter of fact, he had a Dickinson. I think he traded for it. Dickinson wasn’t painting anything like him, yet he had been a student of his. And [Ross] Moffett was a student. There was never any jealousy. We used to have 20 pieces to put up on that screen after a week. We’d do two a day during the class and we’d paint over the weekends. We did them in one sitting. Nine to 12 in the morning and two to five in the afternoon.

The main thing for a student to show progress is the fact that he’s working all the time. His mind’s in it. His body’s in it. He’s right there day in or day out. Whether he gets any criticism or not, he’s going to show some progress. The main thing the teacher can do is inspire you to keep working. Keep you right at it. Go in and point out to you where you are getting off the main track, somewhat. His criticism was very seldom ever technical. The one incident that happened to me, I just recalled, I had gone out to Truro to paint. This girlfriend of mine had a car and she’d take me over and I guess we had taken our lunch. He looked at it when it was on a wall or the screen and he said, “You were on a picnic, perhaps?” He looked at me and I said, “Perhaps.” He said, “Well, the next time you go on one leave your paint box at home.” . You always came out of his class wanting to get right going again, because there was plenty of room to get better. 34 | provincetownartguide.com
about PHILIP MALICOAT Philip Malicoat (1908-1981), known primarily for his Provincetown landscapes and atmospheric seascapes, attended the John Heron Art Institute in Indianapolis. He came to Cape Cod in 1929 where he studied with Charles Hawthorne and Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art as well as with Edwin Dickinson. His work has been exhibited nationally and is in major U.S. museums and private collections. -Oral history interview with Philip Cecil Malicoat, 1975 Oct. 31.

HENRY HENSCHE Henry Hensche (1899-1992) served as Charles Hawthorne’s teaching assistant in Provincetown. He became a master of Hawthorne’s principles of light and color adapting and refining them in an influential career as a teacher that spanned sixty years.
When I first met Henry Hensche in 1974, I was 26 years old and had been painting and showing for a few years. I was painting landscape and I really felt I wanted to learn much more about painting the color I was beginning to see but having a lot of trouble expressing. The color is there and you begin to see it but you don’t know how to make it in paint. If I was going to do landscape and nature I wanted to do it justice. I didn’t know where to take my painting from there. I read an article about Henry in the local Provincetown paper “The Advocate” and I called him. I told him I wanted to come see him. He jokingly said ”Well, I have a long beard and I live in a cave, do you still want to come?” He wanted to be sure I
54 | provincetownartguide.com
“The single most important thing to always remember is an object can never be seen out of the light scheme.” - Henry Hensche
was serious. I was fresh from the 60’s, where everyone had beards and lived in strange spaces, so that actually sounded pretty normal to me. I said “yes” and I went to his house. As luck would have it the summer classes were starting the next day at the Cape Cod School of Art in the barn at the end of Pearl Street, Henrys’ school since 1933. Henry actually taught painting the same way Charles Hawthorne taught his classes years before. He taught people to see the big masses of color, the lights against the darks. The difference was that instead of painting the figure on the beach, the way Hawthorne did at the Cape Cod School of Art here in 1899, Hensche had us paint colored blocks of wood we would arrange on tables outside in every kind of light condition.

He taught us to see the subtle changes in color as the light changes. The most obvious difference being between a sunny day and a grey day or between the early morning and the late afternoon. Henry taught each student individually
“He explained that the light is constantly changing the color.” - Hilda Neily
because he said everyone had different strengths and weaknesses. He would tell us how to determine each color by comparing it to the color next to it. The color blue in the light, for example, is lighter than the color white in the shade. He explained that the light is constantly changing the color. Sometimes he enjoyed just talking about color and its importance in the history of painting and other times he would simply let us be to try to see and paint on our own. He would say “You don’t learn how to play the piano the first time you sit down to play. You have to learn the scales first. ” I teach the same way. I try to make the students understand that instead of the objects or landscape we are looking at

Left: Henry Hensche block study 9" x 12" ca. 1975 Photo courtesy John Ebersberger. Right: Hilda Neily “Hydrangeas” oil on board 2014
we’re really painting the color of the light surrounding it. But we don’t have actual light to paint with, we have opaque paint so, as Henry taught, “We are painting the illusion of light.” So when we bring the studies inside you can tell what kind of light it was painted in in terms of time of day or kind of day. Grey days and sunny days being the most obvious difference. The air in front of what you’re seeing is what people call light and it’s a color. The Cape School of Art exists today as a non profit and I am honored to be able to continue this tradition of the study of color.
about HILDA NEILY Born in Vermont and a resident of Provincetown since 1968, Hilda Neily is owner and operater of The Hilda Neily Gallery at 364 Commercial Street. She studied plein air Impressionism with Henry Hensche for fifteen years and currently serves as an instructor at the Cape School of Art. Neily’s paintings are included in many private, corporate and museum collections throughout the United States and abroad.

HANS HOFMANN Noted Abstract Expressionist Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) was well-known for his art school in Munich, Germany. After his arrival in America, he worked as an instructor at the Art Students League in New York City before establishing his own school in New York as well as a summer program in 1934 in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Robert Henry is among a large group of famous artists who sought to study with Hofmann at his school in Provincetown.
As a man Hofmann was large. He was physically large, tall and full. And he was large in spirit. He appreciated a good joke and even when serious in his teaching, one could feel his felicity. He was quite generous. If you were serious and poor he made you a monitor. He had more â&#x20AC;&#x153;monitorsâ&#x20AC;? than he needed. I was lucky to have been one of those monitors. I had a few teachers but none reached me the way that Hofmann did. I started studying with Hofmann in his New York school at age nineteen and followed him up to Provincetown. I sensed, 74 | provincetownartguide.com
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” - Hans Hofmann
I knew, that there was something there for me. When asked about his teaching what I usually say is that he taught the syntax of painting. I don’t remember him ever talking about style. He talked about and demonstrated how two-dimensional relationships and apparent movements could produce vibrant spaces. And he made it clear that it was only through searching, with the adventurous use of paint and with courage that we, the students, could grow. In both my art and my teaching Hofmann is still with me. For instance I teach the act of composing, the well spring of creativity. Much of the work in the studio was in the form of drawings from the model. One of the virtues of charcoal is that it is easily erased and moved around, so the drawing was essentially a search for a composition. Hofmann would work on our charcoal drawings as a method of instructing by demonstration. Left: Hans Hofmann in his studio. Courtesy Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

My own teaching has evolved over the years. What remains is the energy made manifest in the process of changing. Where it differs, is that I refrain from critiquing the work (unless strenuously asked). Instead I emphasize play. I like to
“One of Hofmann’s great qualities is that he treated his students as fellow artists.” - Robert Henry
paint by playing myself and encourage that in the class. I also encourage the use of unexpected tools such as kitchen knives, plastic wrap, bubble wrap, etc, not as elements in the painting but as tools to apply, remove and move the paint around. These tools draw attention to the many expressive possibilities of textures, transparencies and different sorts of linear qualities, for example. In place of critiquing I work alongside the students. In that way they can see how I play, how I invent. This creates an atelier rather than an academic classroom environment. We use our eyes, our tools, our imaginations to develop a personal approach, but also an approach that is grounded in the plastic demands of the picture plane.

Left: Hans Hofmann Untitled (abstract landscape, Provincetown) 1942. Ink on paper. Right: Robert Henry, “Standing Figure and Chair” 1954.
One of Hofmann’s great qualities is that he treated his students as fellow artists. I endeavor to do the same. In the academic environment the integrity of the painting is disrupted by a course structure that creates hierarchies. The students study design, or color as preparation for painting rather than finding those values in the process of painting. In the modern academy ideas come first. In my world the act of painting comes first. The ideas that follow come from and are expressed in the visual. The results are frequently ambiguous. It is this ambiguity that enriches the work.
about ROBERT HENRY Robert Henry’s early studies with Hans Hofmann in the abstract expressionist school led to a career spent working mostly as a figurative expressionist painter. He has worked as a guest lecturer nationally and throughout China. He is currently Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn College, where he taught for thirty years, and a teacher locally at both the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and Fine Arts Work Center.

PHILIP MALICOAT Philip Malicoat studied at the John Heron Art Institute in Indianopolis. He came to Cape Cod in 1929 where he continued his studies with Charles Hawthorne and Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art as well as with Edwin Dickinson. Years later, he in turn began to teach painting classes.
Phil was the only teacher I ever had. My first class I had with him was at Castle Hill in Truro in the mid-seventies. I was hooked. He also had classes at his studio year round, three mornings a week. There were maybe seven students. I remember a 17-year-old Ray Nolin, and Eleanor Meldahl and Joan Pereira were also always there. I had known Phil all my life as the father of my best friend Martha Malicoat Dunigan. I had modeled for him in the early fifties but I did not become his student until my forties. He was a relaxed available teacher. We rarely painted outside his studio, using still life and an occasional model. I cherished the classes. Phil did not teach color, but values were everything. Never were we allowed to draw on the canvas, never to commit so 92 | provincetownartguide.com
When painting landscapes, I do them in one sitting. Very simple. Much simpler to do it this way than to find other things you felt other than what you feel today. - Philip Malicoat
early on. We painted the unexpected– a cup overturned, a broken piece of crockery, a pitcher of water spilled. The paint was to be mixed on palettes and carefully blended and only then applied directly to the canvas. Never was paint to be mixed on the canvas. “Paint across the form,” Phil challenged me from day one. Do not paint the object but everything around it and from there it would develop like magic. Today I often hear his voice when I’m painting, reminding me to be true to my muse. He was a great teacher and friend. Phil had a genuine love of good company and family. He particularly enjoyed spending time on the back beach and at his dune shack. He was upset when I used to hang my small works on a fence outside my home. I was trying to make enough to support my Left: Philip Malicoat painting on Provincetown’s back shore in September, 1953. Top Right: Philip Malicoat instructing Anne Packard in Provincetown in 1975.

family. He felt I was abusing my muse, making pictures for tourists. I must stop or he wouldn’t teach me any longer. I did not stop and two years went by. Finally I approached him begging to return. He agreed but it was short lived and he died soon after. He said I could only serve one master - Him. Today, when I do teach or criticize someone’s work, I follow closely to those ideals that Phil taught me. 94 | provincetownartguide.com
about ANNE PACKARD Born and raised in Hyde Park, N.Y., Anne Packard spent her summers as a child in Provincetown. Grandaughter of Romantic Impressionist Max Bohm, she is a mostly self-taught artist whose early art was painted on wood panels and weathered shingles. Forty years later, her atmospheric seascapes and landscapes of Provincetown, the Outer Cape, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Mexico can be found in art collections around the globe. The Packard Gallery, a restored church building at 418 Commercial Street, has been a fixture in Provincetown since 1986.
