Description

Subject Matter:

Lombard summered in Monhegan, Maine and developed much of his aesthetic and subject matter there. Monhegan was a well known artist colony that had existed since the mid-nineteenth century. The moodiness and unease of this image can be attributed to the tonality and the texture of the piece. The crosshatching suggests aggression or tension.
