This large New York period painting displays Palmer Hayden's long fascination with painting nautical scenes. From his early paintings of Boothbay, ME to his time at Concarneau on the Brittany coast and along the Seine in Paris, Hayden painted many seascapes and river scenes teeming with boats and dock yard activity. With his return to New York in 1937, Hayden included the rapidly changing urban scenery in his landscapes.
