oil on canvas laid on board 35. 5 x 27.5 cm (14 x 10 3/4 in.) signed lower right; signed and titled on verso LOT NOTES: In 1941 David Burliuk bought a house on Squiretown Road in Hampton Bays and built a studio and gallery. In 1942, at Burkiuk`s invitation, Cikovsky visited the North Sea area of Southampton, Long Island. Attracted to the region he began spending his summers there, creating landscapes and beach scenes in oil, watercolor and tempera. Other artists, including Arshile Gorky, George Constant, Milton Avery, John Graham along with Raphael and Moses Soyers, visited the region during the summer months once they have read Burliuk`s publication "Color & Rhyme" and saw Cikovsky`s vibrant landscapes. In group shows they sometimes referred to themselves as the "Hampton Bays Art Group."
