Born in Lorain, Ohio, in 1907, Stevan Dohanos studied at the Cleveland School of the Arts. Dohanos was influenced by Henri, Sloan, Glackens, Shinn, and Prendergast, among others.  Best known for his Saturday Evening Post covers depicting the heart of America through familiar, everyday scenes, Dohanos illustrated more than a hundred of the magazine’s covers during the 1940’s and 50’s. The artist also painted several post office murals, including West Palm Beach and Charlotte Amelie in Florida.

Dohanos’s paintings are in the collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Whitney Museum of American Art.  In 1971, he was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. Dohanos was one of the founding faculty of the Famous Artists School in Westport, Connecticut.

"West Quoddy Light" depicts the contrast of shadow and light on a detailed view of the distinctively striped tower overlooking the Quoddy Narrows between the United States and Canada. Dohanos illustrated a cover for the September 22, 1945 edition of the Saturday Evening Post of the same lighthouse.
