Remarks
The structure in this drawing resembles the pavilion on the dock at Diamond Point, Lake George, New York. 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.
