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

(PaJaMa)

Margaret Hoening was a painter and an etcher [who studied] at the Art Students League. There, she met the artist couple Paul Cadmus and Jared French. In 1937, she married French, fifteen years her junior, who had spent the previous decade with Cadmus. The trio formed a tight bond, with Cadmus and French continuing their relationship. Together, the three formed PaJaMa (a mashup of their first names, Paul, Jared, and Margaret).
