DESCRIPTION: Mahone Bay is one of the "signature" works of William Glackens. If you closely examine Mahone Bay, a confident pleasure in the medium is very evident. The colors are laid on with a firmness and density far removed from the suggestive lightness of touch in the standard Impressionist method. All of the elements of the composition, figures, boats, and buildings, are realized as complete entities, self-sufficient within their allotted picture space. This painting is nearly an exact rendering of the scene. The small boat with dark sails is a fisherman's boat, its sails dyed with tanbark to prevent mold. The dock belonged to a now vanished resort hotel. The largest boat is the Blackbird, with its staysail set in a position of artistic license. The place and the events of a summer's day in 1910, are empirically intact. The paint and the color are the means of recording these facts. There are those who believe that this respect for the facts is an essentially American trait.
