Dehn, an influential artist and teacher (and author of the definitive textbook of his era on watercolor painting) joined Associated American Artists gallery in 1941. Although this painting is undated, it is likely circa early 1950s, as in 1951 Dehn won a Guggenheim Fellowship, which enabled him to travel to Haiti -- the subject of this work entitled "Haitian Scene #7". It was part of a series inspired by Dehn's visit to Haiti. Framed, "Haitian Scene" measures 11.25 inches (horizontal) by 13.25 inches vertical.
