Winslow Homer and Frank Coolbroth on a twig-style garden bench outside of Homer's studio in Prouts Neck, around 1900. Homer moved to his family's summer home, the Ark, sometime after 1882. He didn't like his living arrangement at the Ark so he had the stable redesigned to make a studio, with his living quarters on the second floor. Many of his marine paintings were done from this studio.

Frank Coolbroth was a family friend and legal adviser to Winslow Homer. Coolbroth was also the maternal grandfather of Addie Kaler-Vaill.
