Dr. Edward E. Feit (1924-2007), Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst,
and freelance art writer for "American Artist Magazine".
Although the painting does not bear the title of West Point, a painting with the undoubtedly same setting
and boats entitled, "Landscape of West Point" sold recently at Bonhams NY.
This is a striking and powerful work, very contemporary in feel.
The paint application, with energetic impasto directional strokes and use of strong colors,
is quite different from many of his softer pastels, for which he is so well known.

Best known as a painter of Boston street scenes and its waterfront, painted en plein air.
After 1920, he also produced NYC scenes in his Washington Square studio.
A failed marriage probably caused his return to Boston, a bohemian lifestyle, and drinking.
Although he never studied in Paris, as did most other American Impressionists, he captured perhaps better than anyone the feeling of Boston with vibrant strokes in oils and pastels.
When he died, his friends found him in his little room (apparently smelling of alcohol) with his bags packed and a ticket to France in his pocket.
