A watercolor painting of a lonely lighthouse on coastal dune cliffs of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, signed at lower right by artist HARVEY JOHN DODD (1933-2011) and dated there 1987. This appears to be an unusually large example of the artist's work, at 21 1/2" by 15 1/4" (29" by 23 1/2" as framed in light wood with Plexiglas). Dodd is known for his coastal and marine works. He maintained the Harvey Dodd Gallery, a fixture in Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, since 1959, claiming it as the oldest gallery in P'town. The artist worked in watercolor, pastel, oil, and mixed media. Many works that have appeared on the market have been small or even miniature. This piece, fresh from a Palm Springs estate, is a fine example in excellent condition. The feeling of dusk or dawn is beautifully captured by the artist. Allow for reflections in the Plexi (appearing as white streaks, etc.). The art itself is flawless.
