This painting appeared in our weekly email on 7/8/16 with the following gallery comments:

Frederick Wildermuth Rigley was born in Owasso, MI in 1914 and from adolescent days saw his career as a painter. He studied at the Ringling School in Sarasota. It was there he met Alberta Shulz (the second wife of Brown County artist Adolph Shulz who taught at Ringling). The story goes, she needed a ride from Sarasota back to Nashville and Rigley obliged. He became enamored of Brown County and moved there in 1951. I met Mr. Rigley about twelve years ago – aged but hanging on and one of the last of the old-school artists left by the turn of this century. Today’s piece, Summer Pier (our title) is from one of his favorite painting locales – the East Coast. It appears to be sunrise with the hazy light casting all those morning hues and a figure heading to his fishing boat. The painting is in perfect condition — recently surface cleaned, re-framed and ready to hang.
