Saugatuck Douglas Historical Society

The Saugatuck Douglas Historical Society found this gem of a plein air watercolor that is similar in style and technique taught by the Ox-Bow School from the 1930’s to the 1960’s. These paintings are wonderful because they capture the entrepreneurial free spirit, an important moment in Saugatuck’s history. We love seeing the boat builder in his studio, and how the watercolor documents it as a kind of living history. Stay tuned as the restoration continues…
