    De Lory's gas station in Wellfleet by Edward Hopper,1940.

Mr Hopper, who died forty years ago next month, painted many of his most famous canvases here and  his work will be given a major show at the Boston MFA  May 9-August 19, and then the exhibit will go on to D.C. and Chicago.  The painting above of de Lory's gas station in Wellfleet is still recognizable on the west side of Route  just before the Truro town line.

Orleans native  Andrew de Lory has photographs the Hopper  house in Truro for a photo essay in a Boston area magazine this summer. 

This site has a short bio of Hopper and 32 of his paintings.
