Boat at Anchor was most likely painted in the mid-1890s, for it displays the limited tonal range that characterized Twachtman's landscapes of the period. The composition is invigorated by the strong verticality of the boat's mast, which is carried through the canvas in the dissolving reflection it casts upon the water.
