      PALMER HAYDEN (1890 - 1973)
      New York, South Ferry.

      Oil on linen canvas, circa 1940. 558x762 mm; 22x30 inches. Signed in oil, lower left recto. Signed and titled in oil, verso.

      Provenance: Miriam A. Hayden, the artist's wife; M. Hanks Gallery, Santa Monica, CA; John Axelrod, Boston (1997); Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2011).

      This fine example from his New York period 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 activity. With his return to New York in 1937, Hayden included the rapidly changing urban scenery in his landscapes.
