During this time period, Gifford's works were particularly well done. Rocks are detailed in Gifford's notable style.

Impressive watercolor with Dumpling Rock in the distance. Figure on the shore with fishing gear slung over his shoulder shown wading around the rocks at low tide. In the background there are two men rowing in a dory and a gaff rigged sailboat with two figures towing a skiff. Great detail in the shoreline, and the colors are muted blues and beige. Rocks are detailed in Gifford's notable style. During this time period, Gifford's works were particularly well done. 

Condition is excellent and has been preserved under museum glass with UV protection. Signature and date are clear and distinct.

Frame is very ornate gold leaf with beading and is in great condition.
