Catalogue Note

In the summer of 1952, Fairfield Porter stopped in Wareham, Massachusetts on his way to Maine, staying with his wife's sister.  Not having a canvas with him, Porter procured a board on which he painted this picture of "The Narrows" clam shack in Wareham.  Porter gave the painting to his hostess as a thank you gift.
