Here's a decorative item, a piece of classic Americana, if you enjoy the work of one of America's most beloved and famous painters, EDWARD HOPPER, but you can't afford to buy the real thing (priced well into the millions), and yet you want something more than an offset print in a plastic frame. The original painting is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and it measures 29 1/2" by 43 1/2". This oil on canvas is signed at lower right "Allesee" and is quite a bit smaller, measures 14" by 18" (19" by 23" in its simple and attractive blonde wood frame). Condition is excellent, and both painting and frame are ready for your wall. According to a listing on the site of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, In "The Lighthouse at Two Lights" Hopper isolated the dramatic silhouette of the 120-foot-high lighthouse tower and adjoining Coast Guard station against the open expanse of blue sky. Set on a rocky promontory in Cape Elizabeth, Maine — though no water is visible in the painting — the architecture is bathed in bright sunlight offset by dark shadows. Since 1914 Hopper had regularly summered in Maine, and this picture is one of three oils and several watercolors that he did of this site during summer 1929. To Hopper, the lighthouse at Two Lights symbolized the solitary individual stoically facing the onslaught of change in an industrial society. The integrity and clarity of his work made Hopper a quiet force in American art for forty years and one of America's most popular artists." This copyist I think really did an excellent job with the wispy cirrus clouds and the gables and shadows of the coast guard station. .
