Crossing the Bar, by Edward Redfield, depicts Manana Island which lies across from Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine. Redfield was a regular summer visitor to Maine and spent a great deal of time on Monhegan. The oil on panel was likely painted in the 1920s and is held within a period frame. The painting is signed and titled on reverse: "Crossing the Bar Edward Redfield NA". It measures 12 x 14 inches. Edward Redfield is considered one of the founding members of the New Hope School of painters. He was an internationally renowned landscape painter in his lifetime and continues to have the same reputation today. Redfield was known to paint many of his compositions in 'one-go' within a period of 6-8 hours- typically outside in the midst of nature.
