Cape Ann Museum is readying a major print retrospective of Fitz Henry Lane which opens October 7th. The staff is fine tuning the installation, adjusting lighting levels, and so on. I couldn’t resist sharing a few close ups and details to build some excitement. Lane was born in 1804 in Gloucester. He was one of the rare artists that gained worldwide recognition in his own lifetime. Today he is regarded as one of the great marine and luminous painters of the 19th century. His printmaking is stellar and continued throughout his career. Mark your calendars! Cape Ann Museum developed super special events related to the exhibition including walking tours and a full day print symposium (read more below). Sponsors of the Lane exhibition include: John Rando, Jerry and Margaretta Hausman, Linzee and Beth Coolidge, Jay Last, J.J. and Jackie Bell, Bill and Anne Kneisel, Arthur Ryan, International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA), American Historical Print Collectors Society, Inc., and Beauport Hospitality Group. Drawn From Nature & On Stone: The Lithographs of Fitz Henry Lane opens October 7th at Cape Ann Museum, Pleasant Street, Gloucester, MA.
