Painting

Narragansett Bay
1835-1910, American

A lovely 1884 marine scene, by the American Luminist landscape painter, Edmund Darch Lewis. Sight size is 14 1/4 x 27 1/4 inches and is signed and dated on the lower right, watercolor with gouache, framed. A recognizable talent at an early age, Lewis studied under the German born, Hudson River School artist, Paul Weber. The Philadelphia Public Ledger described Lewis as "a tremendous talent, great freedom from tradition." His art was in high demand from the beginning and he developed a national following.
