Catalogue Note

Edgar Allen Beem writes, "Dog at the Door is a well-known painting and one infused with a seductive, summery calm...Dog at the Door employs a skillful use of white...It is a painting which provides the viewer who needs a narrative explanation with a great many story possibilities, but it needs none to succeed" ("People and Things Connection," Maine Art Now, 1990, p. 28).
