During the artist's visit to Rhode Island he went to a few polo matches at the Point Judith Country Club in Narragansett Pier. A few impromptu pieces came out of this visit.  This painting, which features a match between the teams Westchester and Point Judith, has the tower in Thomas Hazard's estate in the background.  Hazard was one of the nine founding settlers of Newport, in the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.
