Code 614-17 19th Century Harbor Scene Painting from France-Oil on Canvas
This appealing antique French Oil Painting depicts a night time harbor scene. The moon is passing through some large dark clouds in the sky and highlighting the gently rippling waters of the wetlands and harbor. On the far right hand side, is a boulevard at the base of a hillside having small and large buildings. Flickering lights in windows can be seen along the old lamp post lit boulevard. Two tall edifices are in a prominent position behind the other buildings. In the harbor are boats that are docked, some are lit with people conversing, while others are simply docked at the harbor. Across the harbor is a small building on the rocky shoreline with people check their nets.
