Robert Henri - American 1865-1929

Rocks and Sea - Monhegan Island, 20 x 25 cm

In earlier posts we discussed the idea of framing the sea with rocks on either side, to avoid a lopsided composition with a vertical element on one side, and a horizontal one on the other. In this work, it appears as if the mass of rock on the right side was added later, for this reason.
