Street in Rockport, 12 1/2″ x 16″ (image) not including white border. Oil on flat canvas. Bright colors on this oil painting. Signature doesn’t appear to be Otis Cook; however, the DAC catalog identifies this painting as by Otis Cook under “New England Landscape.”  We guarantee it to be by Cook and will give a refund if customer can prove otherwise. Buyer pays for shipping.

My parents lost touch with the Cooks. The last time they were in that area was in about 1949 or 1950 when I was young. Otis and Grace had moved to some sort of shop with a gift shop and a studio for Otis. My mother also said that Grace made jewelry. She has a note card picture of the “Boatshop Studios.”
