Some of the great 20th-century American painters liked to laze on the beach as much as the next guy. Occasionally they even lifted a brush. See Corn Hill Beach in Truro through the eyes of Edward Hopper. He lived nearby, so didn’t have to pay for beach parking. Marsden Hartley was partial to Pine Point Beach in Scarborough, Maine (parking lot available), but did some of his most evocative painting much farther up the Maine coast on the shores of the village of Corea.
