    Another study of the sea painted on verso

    Provenance:
    William Macbeth Gallery, New York

    Macbeth Gallery was an important gallery for American paintings. Impressed by work that Connaway brought to the gallery, Robert Macbeth, with four artists including Emil Carlsen, Paul Dougherty and Frederick Waugh, gave him advice and funds to go to Head Harbor Island, Maine to study painting the sea. Connaway exhibited at Macbeth Gallery from 1923 to 1940. This small painting of Squeaker Cove Monhegan Island, Maine, purchased from Macbeth, demonstrates why Connaway is considered a master of seascape.
