Varujan “Bugsy” Boghosian (pictured) is considered to be among the leading Provincetown artists of the post-World War II generation. His assemblages of found objects are presented with a discipline that calls to mind the work of Joseph Cornell. Boghosian attended the Vesper George School of Art in Boston and used a Fulbright scholarship to study in Italy. He taught for many years at Dartmouth College. He and his wife, Marilyn, bought this cottage in 1966. He helped organize the celebrated Long Point Gallery, an artists’ co-operative that opened in 1977 in the old Eastern School. His work is represented by the Berta Walker Gallery.
