Beginning in 1919, Voorhees, his wife, and their three children spent most winters in Bermuda. Like many of his fellow-painters, Voorhees was drawn to the island partly because its climate allowed for painting in plein air even during the winter months, and the paintings he produced there employ the brilliant hues associated with the island's tropical climate and holiday atmosphere. Voorhees's Bermuda scenes were very well-received during his lifetime—in 1928, the New York Times described The Peacock Sea, another one of Voorhees's Bermuda compositions as “permeated with haunting, unforgettable beauty.”
