Abbott Handerson Thayer
Dublin Pond, New Hampshire
20 1/8 x 16 1/8 in.
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of William T. Evans

A longtime resident of Dublin, Abbott Thayer described this sketch as “a very successful picture of the sunshine striking down on the bottom of a summer lake.” He gave the painting to the architect Stanford White as a wedding present, and it hung for many years in White's New York apartment in the old Madison Square Garden.
