Cape Elizabeth Light Art Print 18" x 24" Travel Poster - Maine
Cape Elizabeth Light, in Cape Elizabeth, Maine was painted by American realist painter Edward Hopper in the summer of 1927. I felt fortunate to obtain permission to visit the grounds some 80 years later. Today the Victorian house is a private residence, and the tower is under the care of the American Lighthouse Foundation. Much has changed since Hopper’s time. The house has been extensively remodeled and the once-barren hillside is now layered with fine homes. Still, it was easy to be taken back to Hopper’s time as I sketched and photographed this classic lighthouse in the morning light. The tower and house dominates my composition so I have kept the sky simple, but I have detailed the low-tide rocks of Casco Bay and distant Cushing Island that provided the depth I was seeking. Maine’s coastal Rugosa roses added a lively final touch.
The colors are bold and striking with a solid ink coverage reminiscent of silk- screen printing
