Context
Fog is an ever-present feature on the Maine coast, particularly in spring and summer and especially on its islands. Bellows focused on the interplay of shapes and colors of a stormy sea along the rocky shore of Monhegan, brilliantly capturing the white foam of crashing waves and the water’s greenish hues.

Featured in “Maine and American Art: Farnsworth Art Museum” with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
