Painting

Rocky Coast at Sunset
1840-1930, American

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.
