Remarks
The dock in this drawing resembles the dock at Diamond Point, Lake George, New York, with its distinctive pavilion (just visible at the right edge of Rothko’s drawing). Rothko and his wife Edith summered near Lake George several times, including stays in 1938 and 1939. This drawing—part of a small series of studies made in the vicinity of the Diamond Point dock (see Related Works on Paper)—almost certainly dates from this period, during which the Rothkos rented an old schoolhouse at Trout Lake, a few miles north of Diamond Point.
