Jay Connaway (1893-1970) painted in an era marked by the economic, political and social upheaval of World War I, the Great Depression and World War II. He painted in a bold Impressionist style and critics in the 1920s called him “the greatest sea painter since Winslow Homer.”

Under the patronage of Bartlett Arkell, president of Beech-Nut Corporation and founder of the Canajoharie Library and Art Gallery, Connaway painted in Brittany, France. Arkell later provided Connaway with a house on the remote island of Monhegan, Maine. This exhibition includes paintings inspired by both the coastline of Monhegan Island and the landscape of Vermont.
