From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: This painting was a gift from the artist to Ogden Codman shortly after it was painted. It depicts the view across the harbor from Dinard, the town on the northern coast of France where the Codman family had moved in the mid 1870s. Edward Darley Boit was a close friend of the more famous artist John Singer Sargent, who immortalized Boit's four daughters in the well-known painting which is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
