The Legacy of Islesboro's Charles Dana Gibson
A profile of the painter and illustrator Charles Dana Gibson, creator of the famous Gibson Girl ideal, and of his great-grandson, Abe Goodale, also a painter. In 1904, Gibson purchased land on 700 Acre Island off the coast of Islesboro and spent every summer at his estate there until his death in 1944, often painting island scenes, family portraits, and landscapes. Goodale works out of his great-grandfather's 700 Acre Island studio, painting Maine fishermen.
