Beautiful giclee (zhee-CLAY) flat print ready for framing. Printed on high quality watercolor paper from an original oil painting by Robert Knudsen (see Bob's mini bio in Robert Knudsen Fine Art category). Image size is approx. 20" x 30". Overall is approx. 22" x 32".
Lighthouses are always a popular subject and here Bob perfectly captures the old lighthouse on Fenwick Island, Delaware.
Built in 1858, the Fenwick Island Lighthouse has warned ships away from the Fenwick Shoal for 138 years.
The light originally burned whale oil before switching to kerosene. It was tended by two men who lived with their families in houses on either side of the lighthouse, which can be seen in the print.
Today, the light operates automatically by electricity.
Where the lighthouse stands is the old line between Maryland and Pennsylvania.
A Giclee (zhee-CLAY), is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity, high tech reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclees are produced from digital scans of existing artwork.
Limited edition of 950. Signed and numbered. Not reproduced in any other large format. Makes a great gift for anyone who loves lighthouses, history, ships, the seashore and fine art. The soothing palette goes with any decor.
We are fortunate to have access to a very small number of these prints. This is a pre-production price so don't miss out on this great piece of art at an affordable price.
