"The Sea Beyond," by Charles A. Couper. Harris House Fine Art.“That’s how I came to Provincetown was because of Charlie,” Salvatore Del Deo told me in a conversation in 2013. “We became very, very close.” He was referring to Charles Alexander Couper, a fellow student at the Vesper George School of Art in Boston in the 1940s. “This era of painters, this whole firmament of young kids, came to study with Henry Hensche,” Josephine Del Deo added. Couper, who specializes in still lifes, was born in Portsmouth, N.H. While studying with Hensche, he met another artist, Marjorie Franks (1927-2012) of Philadelphia, Miss., whom he married. The couple moved to town full-time in 1963 and bought this parcel from Clifton A. and Katherine Nelson. They owned it until 1979. • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-05-14
