Wengenroth studied during several summers with George Pearse Ennis at the Eastport Summer School of Art. Ennis suggested that he work in lithography, and during 1929 and 1930 he did the drawings that were the basis for the Eastport lithographs. These were done in collaboration with the printer Bolton Brown in Greenwich Village, and some were included in Wengenroth's first show at the Macbeth Gallery in 1931.
