This canvas portrays his three daughters near the family’s summer retreat at North Haven, Maine. Eleanor, the eldest, recalled: “When we were in North Haven, Papa would often have us put on our best white dresses and then ask us to sit in the grass or play in the woods. We thought it was silly and the maids made such a fuss when they saw our clothes afterwards.” Benson permitted his children to read or play cards while posing but disguised these diversions in his final compositions.”

Molding width: 4-5/8” "In this ideal of teamwork, old and young row in unison to bring their tiny craft home through swelling seas. John George Brown based Pull for the Shore on sketches made on Grand Manan Island off the far northern coastline of Maine. Each face is a portrait of a local fisherman whom Brown met and sketched, but this epic New England battle of man against nature also may address American politics of the Reconstuction era. Following decades of sectional conflict and the violence of the Civil War, North and South struggled in the 1870s to heal the nation's wounds and work together toward prosperous future." — permanent collection label.
