Oil on canvas, 19 1/2" by 25 1/2" plus 1 1/2" wide framing (possibly an inner frame, the outer one long since separated), apparently unsigned, circa early 20th century, the subject the famous and unique twin Thatcher Island lighthouses (also known as Cape Ann Light Station), about one mile off the coast of Rockport, Massachusetts. The lighthouses were erected in 1861 as a pair, thereby aiding navigation by mariners. Each is 124 feet in height. This painting seems to have been created by a talented hand, but he or she failed to sign. I imagine this would have been by an artist now listed. There is a small puncture at center in the sky as shown, a small area of frame abrasion at right, and a small area of flaked paint at left. Found in Maine.
