Rocky Coast at Sunset
This framed landscape by C. Herbert Moore is done in oil on canvas and is signed and dated in the lower right corner. The painting measures 14 x 22 inches but comes in a period frame, most likely the original, with a total measurement of 16 1/2 x 28 inches. Created in 1887, this highly realistic landscape shows Moore's ability to capture the subjects realistic detail and his ability to suggest differentiations in textures. Moore helped found the American Pre-Raphaelite movement and eventually became the first professor of art at Harvard and the first director of the Fogg Museum.
