SEASCAPE

“Pat de Groot, a painter who embodied an era when the beaches and dunes at the tip of Cape Cod were peopled with artistic geniuses and incorrigible eccentrics — often in the form of the same person — died on July 26 in Brewster, Mass. She was 88”

“I want to grab a piece of all this, of this sacred place, and say something with paint about the sky and the sea and the horizon and how it affects me,” Ms. de Groot said on the occasion of a 2015 show at the Acme Fine Art gallery in Boston.
