In Germany, from 1922–23, Hartley painted a series of Southwestern landscapes, which become known as his New Mexico Recollections and include New Mexico Recollection, 1923 (2008.06.01), and New Mexico Recollection #14, c. 1923 (2009.01.01).
Rocks in the Water, 1922–23, in the New Mexico Museum of Art, features similar dimensions and a similar scene done in a palette dominated by greys.
