Artist: Jonas Lie
Title: Boat Docked, Manasquan River
Media: Watercolor on paper 6 3/4 × 9 1/4 inches
Description: Signed and dated at lower right: “Jonas Lie/1939”

Lie was a prolific artist who exhibited widely and won numerous awards. He exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1901 to 1938, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1908 to 1939, and at the Corcoran Gallery of Art biennials from 1907 to 1939. He painted numerous harbor and cove scenes in the Impressionist style, and was quite well-known during his lifetime.

Painted one year before Lie’s death in New York, this watercolor represents a view along the Manasquan River in New Jersey. Boating was a popular activity along the river, and the scene may represent the area around Brielle (incorporated in 1881), a town in Monmouth County located at the inlet where the Manasquan runs into the Atlantic Ocean. The Manasquan River Yacht Club, one of the oldest yacht clubs in the United States, is located in Brielle.
