This atmospheric drawing of a New England harbor ranks with some of his best work. On this overcast day fishermen in their rain gear sit in their small boats while nearby a couple of sailboats float on the water. Our favorite part of this drawing is the center portion where the sun can be seen breaking through the clouds and lighting up the sky and water.
