Note: “A work in which his mastery of the traditional aspects of drawing is made clear is the prizewinning and frequently reproduced 'The Sardine Barge'. The foreshortening of the barge and the deft transitions between the boats, the watery reflections, and Monterey Bay yield a natural and unaffected harmony of light and mass.”
