Two hand-drawn pictorial maps of South Truro and Cape Cod, by artist Josephine Hopper link art and cartography. She made them to introduce the Cape Cod she shared with her husband, Edward Hopper, to collectors who bought his painting of a site she mapped, these mid-1930s maps show little regard for accurate scale, and have artistic rather than technical style. They show landmarks, both natural and constructed, from either Edward’s or Jo’s paintings, or both. Her maps imitate aspects of modern topographic maps, recall turn-of-the-century pictorial maps of Paris, project her inner vision of the outer world that she and Edward both depicted.
