Clouds and Water was painted by Arthur Dove in 1930. It was inspired by the landscape of Halesite, a town on the north shore of Long Island where Dove and his companion Helen “Reds” Torr lived in the late 1920s.
They resided on their boat, the Mona, in warm weather and they had just begun their first winter as caretakers of the Ketewomoke Yacht Club in November 1929. From their second-floor room at the Yacht Club, surrounded by windows on three sides, Dove and Torr had an unimpeded view of Huntington Harbor.
In the airy marine prospect of Clouds and Water, several sailboats dip along the surface of the waves, and a landscape of rounded hills rises in the distance. The sky, which fills half the canvas, is banded with long curving lines that suggest wind currents. This painting can be reproduced on canvas by DayDayPaint.com.
