This serene, nocturnal view toward the west end of River Street belies the events taking place in the world at the time. Born in Atlanta, Sheridan studied at the Georgia Institute of Technology and at the Pennsylvania Academy before eventually settling in Savannah. Here, he worked as interior designer and architect while also exhibiting his paintings with the Savannah Art Club and the Association of Georgia Artists. This work was purchased by Telfair from the Thirteenth Annual Association of Georgia Artists exhibition.
