Fitz H. Lane: An Artist's Voyage

From bold canvas’ depicting storm-tossed seas to tranquil images of harbors bathed in the roseate hues of sunset… from studies of bustling wharves teeming with activity to sketches of regal sail ships lying quietly at anchor, the artwork of Fitz Henry Lane (1804-1864) was a triumph, succeeding in capturing the atmosphere, character, and romance of mid-nineteenth century coastal New England.

Lane.”
