Context
For over two centuries, the New England coastline has inspired scores of artists, writers, scholars and seekers influenced by the romantic, spiritual, and transcendentalist movements that presaged the rise of tourism. Views such as this, although rare by a portraiture artist such as DeCamp, portrayed the Atlantic as a breezy and bucolic aesthetic to be admired and basked in rather than an entity to be feared.
