Arthur Wesley Dow

Marsh Island, Ipswich, MA depicts a salt marsh near the birthplace and principal residence of artist Arthur Wesley Dow. The tidal rivers and wetlands of this area were a frequent subject of his landscapes, both in oil painting and in print. Dow was greatly influenced by Japanese woodblock prints. His placement of the horizon line at the upper portion of the canvas reflects their impact.
