Helen Turner was one of a group of artists who built and occupied summer homes and studios at Cragsmoor, NY, a village on the plateau top of the Shawangunk Mts. Other artists who summered there include Edward Gay, Edward Lamson Henry, Frederick Dellenbaugh, Charles Courtenay Curran. As such, the depiction of a NYC artist's summer studio interior is possibly unique and definitely of interest.
Gift of Helen Maria Turner
