Frank Corso painted Shadow Play and Morning Edgartown Light on Martha's Vineyard en plein air. (F. Corso, unpublished letter, July 10, 2022) The present pair of works were previously in the collection of David Gibbs Lloyd (1934-2009), who wrote some of the most memorable television sitcom scripts of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s for such shows as, The Bob Newhart Show, Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, Wings, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show for which he had more than 30 episode credits and awarded him the Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series in 1975. David and his wife, Arline W. Lloyd (1934-2022), were art enthusiasts and Arline dedicated thousands of hours as a docent at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. David and Arline commissioned Joseph Corso to paint their home on Oyster Pond Road in Edgartown, seen in Shadow Play, after acquiring Morning Edgartown Light.
