Lamar Dodd, born and raised in Georgia, studied art in New York, and returned to the South and in 1937 to become a faculty member of the University of Georgia where he taught for 35 years. During this time he also helped to found the Georgia Museum of Art at the University. Dodd traveled frequently beginning in the 1940s and the scenery of such places as the mountains in north Georgia, South Carolina’s coastal islands, and various locales in Maine became subjects for his paintings, which he approached with a lighter color palette. For example, "Deer Island, Maine," is an abstracted view of a coastal landscape. Dodd applied the bright blues and green with short brushstrokes, mimicking techniques used by abstract expressionists.
