Details: This poster is of Boston Harbour, about 1850-55, by Fitz Hugh Lane.
Fitz Henry Lane (born Nathaniel Rogers Lane, also known as Fitz Hugh Lane) (19 December 1804 - 14 August 1865) was an American painter and printmaker of a style that would later be called Luminism, for its use of pervasive light. Beginning in the early 1840's Lane would declare himself publicly to be a marine painter. Perhaps most characteristic element of Lane's paintings is the incredible amount of attention paid to detail. A contemporary of the Hudson River School, he enjoyed a reputation as America's premier painter of marine subjects during his lifetime. Lane was a transcendentalist, and it has been uncovered that he was also a Spiritualist.
