Notes

Setting: The Maine coast is a strong possibility, especially Monhegan Island, which became the setting for numerous later Fiene works. (See Fisherman's Cove, Maine.) Paintings from as early as 1921 are set there.

Exhibition: The Downtown Gallery (New York) "Ernest Fiene New Lithographs" (1928)

Rounded Corners: Fiene lithographs with rounded corners include this work, Winter, Spring. Brooklyn Bridge, and White Rose in a Vase.

Impressions Outside the Edition: One impression titled "Snug Harbor," signed and dated "Ernest Fiene 28" but unnumbered is inscribed, "To Gaston and Madame Lachaise in memory of our enjoyable visit." It was not unusual for Fiene to make a gift of one of his lithogrpahs after a social visit, especially to a fellow artist. The "our visit" refers to Fiene and his first wife, Jeanette.
