The Irishman’s close friend, the artist Armand Seguin was impressed by the originality of this body of work. On 15 May 1899 he wrote to O'Conor urging him to exhibit the entire seascape series as a distinct body of work: “I fully approve of your change of scenery. I realise you have ‘gone to hell’, putting up in a hotel next to a lighthouse with two million candlepower…. Your art will benefit from this move, in any case you must have had a wonderful display this month if the storms in Paris were anything to go by…. What particularly pleases me, and here I am completely in agreement with you, is that you worked hard on these paintings and put your all into them…. I envy your love and don’t doubt your great success at your chosen time.”
