Event description

Description

Offered in conjunction with the special exhibition, Drawn From Nature & on Stone: The Lithographs of Fitz Henry Lane.

Delve into the 19th century on this tour through the neighborhoods and waterfront areas that inspired the artwork of native son Fitz Henry Lane (1804-1865). Learn how Lane rose from modest beginnings in the pre-Civil War era to worldwide recognition as a marine painter and why, even today, numerous artists journey to Cape Ann to capture its unusual light. Participants are encouraged to bring a smart phone or tablet in order to access the rich sources of information available at Fitz Henry Lane Online and to connect specific locations to the paintings they inspired.

Tour will be held rain or shine and lasts about 1½ hours.


The Museum is deeply grateful to the sponsors of this exhibition:
John Rando, Jerry and Margaretta Hausman, Linzee and Beth Coolidge, J.J. and Jackie Bell, Bill and Anne Kneisel, Arthur Ryan, International Fine Print Dealers Association, American Historical Print Collectors Society, Inc.
