Anthony Thieme could often be found painting along the docks or winding roads of Cape Ann, capturing the harmony offered by small town life. His compositions are infused with atmosphere, whether rendering the warm glow of eternal summer days or the misty half-light of an overcast harbor, all achieved through his sensitive handling of light and shadow. These qualities are exemplified in the landscape Peaceful Street, Rockport. This charming view of New England in early autumn finds locals meandering under a canopy of trees, as the leaves gradually begin to change color and fall to the road below. The warmth in the air is still palpable and the whole scene is crowned by the distinctive spire of Rockport’s First Baptist Church peeking from between the branches.
