In a letter to Jesse Dukeminier dated June 1963, Milton Avery wrote, "The painting you now own was done from a sketch I made on a trip to the Gaspe [sic]. It was painted in 1940 and I think of it as one of my favorites of that period. I'm happy that it means so much to you. That lifted my spirits."
