Jonas Lie was born in Moss, Norway in 1880 to a Norwegian father and an American mother. Lie’s father died when he was 12. After a year of studying in Paris, Lie joined his mother and sisters in New York City. Lie went on to become one of America’s most recognized landscape painters. He is best known for his seascapes. His works have been exhibited widely across the United States and throughout the world. Lie died in 1940.

Lie purchased a cottage at Saranac Lake, in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, and it is possible this painting is of that spot.
