In 1929 Fitzgerald moved to the Monterey Peninsula, where he became part of the Cannery Row circle that included John Steinbeck, Ed Ricketts, John Cage and Krishnamurti. In 1931 he married dancer Margaret (-€œPegs-€) Mather; the marriage lasted only ten years so we know that this painting was done in Monterey, before Fitzgerald retired to Monhegan, an island off Maine, in the mid 1940's. Fitzgerald's watercolors were referred to as forceful, bold and brilliant. In this painting of his wife, reflections and shadows and flattened shapes create a modernist composition, with the focus emphatically on the figure.
