Signature Details
The May 14, 1913 Grand Rapids Herald article illustrates and describes the painting thusly, "An opalescent atmosphere surrounds the picture which is conspicuous for its composition in the way in which the massive boats are handled with skillful grace. The movement seems inherent in the composition and a strong sense of color is brought into the foreground beach sands."
