American Impressionist Edward Henry Potthast is best known for his radiant summer scenes of beach-goers and sparkling surf. In his early career Potthast painted domestic interiors and landscapes that featured sound draftsmanship, dark tones, and solid unbroken strokes, but his style moved towards Impressionism after a visit to Europe in the 1880s. After he moved from Cincinnati to New York in 1895, Potthast spent summer months at seaside art colonies, including Gloucester, Rockport, and Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and Ogunquit and Monhegan Island, Maine, where he painted harbor views and people at the beach. Back in New York, he would go to Coney Island or Far Rockaway with his easel, paintbox, and a few panels.
