Lavery made his first of many trips to Tangier in 1891. The city, its light and its views, became so important to the artist that he took a seasonal residence, Dar-el-Midfah. Tangier Bay at Night beautifully illustrates Lavery’s affinity for and understanding of James MacNeill Whistler, whom he knew; as well as his own mastery of the international Impressionist style so in vogue during the early years of the 20th Century. Kenneth McConkey suggests that this painting was probably made during the winter of 1919-20, during Lavery’s last trip to Tangier.
