Beginning in the late 1930s, Cadmus, Jared and Margaret French – and sometimes Tooker by the mid-1940s – spent summers in Provincetown, Fire Island, and Nantucket. Most of the time was spent in Saltaire, Fire Island, which became the setting of paintings that A. Hyatt Mayor [museum curator, art historian, and writer] once dubbed the ‘Fire Island School.’ ~Cadmus, French, & Tooker, the Early Years
