Paintings of Maine Postcard Book


30 oversized postcards measuring 6.5 x 4.75 inches. 

The coast of New England has long attracted tourists and artists drawn to the primal drama of the ocean. The nineteenth century brought changes as coastal communities shifted from an industrialized economic resource to a therapeutic shelter for middle-class tourists, while artists banded together for purposes of camaraderie, creativity, and commerce, and founded coastal art colonies from Connecticut to Maine.

This postcard book contains highlights from the PMA's collection.
