Catalogue Note

In his review of Winslow Homer's Sailing Calm Water, the critic William Howe Downes wrote: "In another of the pictures we have a sunny bit of cove somewhere on Cape Ann, with soft blue water, and a sloop yacht lying at anchor near the farther shore, which forms an undulating line of low grassy hills against the horizon. The mainsail of the sloop is up, and the jib down, lying loose along the bowsprit. The wavering reflection of the blue water makes a very interesting note near the center of the design" ("The Fine Arts. Watercolors by Homer. Three Early Works...on View at Kabatznick's Gallery," Daily Evening Transcript, Boston, Massachusetts, by 1922, clipped).
