Goodwin earned the moniker ‘Sloppy Weather Goodwin’ for his tendency to paint in all seasons, especially Boston’s bone-chilling winters, yet his scenes created during the warmer months are equally charming for their lively brushwork and atmospheric quality. Near T-Wharf, Boston, Massachusetts illustrates his talent for capturing the ordinary moments of daily life, as fishermen return from their morning trips and unload boats anchored in the harbor. His loose brushwork and technique of placing colors right next to one another references the impressionistic style he adopted.
