This oil on canvas marine scape was done by Edward Moran, an English-born artist who emigrated to America with his family in 1844. His forte was seascapes, and when he died, it was said he had no superior in marine painting in America. He was influenced by J M W Turner and James Hamilton, an Irish-born marine painter, and Edward was known for his silvery tones and loose accent of light. His brother, Thomas Moran, was the more famous artist of the two. Sight size is 23 1/2 x 19 1/2 in., overall size is 32 x 27 3/4 in. His works are housed at the Denver Art Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, among others.
