Object Description: Arthur Dove lived on a boat off the coast of New York for seven years before painting "Good Breeze." His vicinity to the water emerges in the fluid forms of the composition: undulating waves of green and blue fuse land with sea, while the yellow triangle at center resembles a billowing sail. Good Breeze also captures the artist’s increasing interest in nonrepresentational painting, as the seascape dissolves into a patchwork of line and color.
