Beginning in 1931, at the age of sixty-two, Snow began to make annual—and sometimes biannual—trips to the Caribbean islands. His first venture was to Bermuda, which would become his most visited destination until his death thirty years later. During this time, Snow produced numerous colorful paintings of the islands’ beaches and towns, applying the same skill of thoughtfully capturing the spirit of his local landscapes that he perfected in New England to his new Caribbean surroundings. Snow’s Bermuda paintings’ success, both on the islands and on the mainland, prompted a local politician to claim that Snow “had done more to advertise Bermuda in the United States through his pictures than any other artist.” Several of his canvasses were turned into printed reproductions and sold at the Yankee Store in Hamilton, Bermuda.
