The Karlin Collection
Redfield’s summer home was located in Boothbay Harbor Maine, where he worked throughout the summer and into early autumn. In Maine, he also painted on Monhegan Island, a boatride from Boothbay Harbor. Redfield, Robert Henri and Rockwell Kent were among the first artists to paint Monhegan. The island eventually became a popular destination for artists, and remains so today. Summer Woodlands was painted on one of the island’s pathways leading to wooded areas.
This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné on Redfield by Dr. Tom Folk
