Robert Hogg Nisbet is a noted Connecticut artist who was affiliated with the Old Lyme school and later the Kent School in Litchfield County. He was a noted landscape artist, figurative artist, genre painter and printmaker. 

The present canvas is a unique view of Northport, Long Island. Northport, a secluded village in the town of Huntington, has long attracted artists, musicians and writers. Nisbet depicted a lively summer day on the beach with children swimming, a couple rowing and sailboats in the harbor. 

The beaches in Long Island are still an attraction for visitors from nearby Connecticut. Surely many of Nisbet’s patrons would have been familiar with the scene. As indicated by the size and the inclusion in the Kent Art Association exhibition of 1914, this was an ambitious painting for the artist and easily among his best.
