    The abstract cubist/surrealist imagery in this work suggests the many nautical motifs Davis drew from summers spent in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

    The date ink stamp on the reverse was the date the artist dropped off the print to The Downtown Gallery. In 1927, Davis joined Edith Halpert’s Downtown Gallery located at 113 West 13th Street - Greenwich Village's first commercial art gallery.
