Historical Context:
Handwritten letter by the artist on the back of the painting: "This painting was made on the shore of Lake Michigan near Ludington, Michigan. That sand bank is steeper than it may appear, I know, I fell coming down it and was half twisted, paints and all. It took me twenty minutes to climb back up it. June 29, 1957."
