William Chadwick studied at the Art Students League in New York, under renowned American Impressionist John Twachtman. After a sojourn in Europe, Chadwick was encouraged by fellow artists to paint at the Old Lyme Art Colony, Connecticut, where he took up residence. Thirteen years later, in Rome and Paris, he began painting plein air Impressionist landscapes rather than figurative and genre subjects and by the 1920s Chadwick was executing striking examples of American Impressionism. Like his artist friends, Harry L. Hoffman, William Howe Foote, and Clark G. Voorhees, Chadwick was drawn to Bermuda for its quality of light.
