Offering this original oil on canvas painting of the infamous Portland Head Lighthouse. This work measures 16 x 20 and is offered unframed. Signed in the lower right "F. Weber," listed American NY / SC painter Frederick Theodore Weber. This is a relative clean painting with a stable paint surface. There is a past repair that is visible from the back (see photos). Dates to the early part of the 20th century. This is truly a beautifully rendered scene with a great sense of motion and atmosphere. One of the better lighthouse paintings we have encountered and a true gem for a collector.
(From Wikipedia) Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The light station sits on a head of land at the entrance of the primary shipping channel into Portland Harbor, which is within Casco Bay in the Gulf of Maine. Completed in 1791, it is the oldest lighthouse in the state of Maine.
