In 1976. artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, painted this bright and striking watercolor on Monhegan Island. Observe how she painted the fish house on the wooden pilings, the open door revealing the fifty-five gallon barrel, three lobster boats at mooring, and a sailboat with its’ mizzen raised. Across Monhegan Harbor she painted the island of Manana. The famous Hermit of Monhegan, Ray Eugene Phillips, lived in a small house on Manana Island. He attended the University of Maine, fought in World War I and then decided to leave it all behind. He lived on Manana from 1930-1975 with his herd of sheep and his geese.
