NOTE:
The present piece depicts the home of Dr. Alonzo Tredwell on Monhegan Island in 1907. Entitled "Four Winds," the property was adjacent to the piece of land that Rockwell Kent had purchased for his mother. About Dr. Tredwell, Jamie Wyeth said: "He's not a commodore, I just named it that because I liked all of his flags. It's sort of a portrait of him. One of the fishermen on Monhegan built this very elaborate flagpole for him in the winter. That summer he put up all these flags and of course we had a windstorm and the whole thing blew down."
