This lovely watercolor is quite desirable for a number of reasons, not the least that it is an excellent painting. The artist is well-listed and well-collected. A very interesting fact is that Menemsha is a small fishing village located in the town of Chilmark on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Dukes County, Massachusetts, and was used as "Amity Island" of Steven Spielberg's 1975 film "Jaws".

John Cuthbert Hare (1908 - 1978) was a watercolorist who painted boats, seascapes and harbor scenes. He was primarily associated with New England, especially Cape Cod, Massachusetts where he spent his summers from 1938 to 1965. However, he was in Florida where he was a member of the St. Augustine Art Association, and other locations on the East Coast.
It is likely Hare was born in New York City. He first studied commercial art in Brooklyn at the Pratt Institute and also studied at the Art Students League in Manhattan. He worked for Hearst newspapers corporation, and in 1933 married. In the next few years, he and his wife traveled extensively, camping and painting and exhibiting his work in galleries.
His work is in museum collections including the Lowe Art Museum and the Lightner Museum, the Smith College Museum of Art as well as many significant private collections.
