This work is one of a series of coastal scenes painted by Theodore Robinson at Cos Cob, Connecticut, a popular American artists’ colony. It reveals how the painter synthesized the earlier influence of Claude Monet with a newfound interest in Japanese prints. As Robinson observed after acquiring his first print in 1894, “My Japanese print points in a direction I must try and take: an aim for refinement and a kind of precision seen in the best old as well as modern work.”
