CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A landscape painting depicts a harbour scene with a lighthouse in the middle of the background on top of a grassy hill. Four small grey buildings are scattered on the hillside throughout the middle ground, along with pyramids of lobster traps. Two figures are walking along a dirt path up the hill toward the small building in front of the lighthouse. There is a dock in the foreground on the right hand side with a body of water below it on the left and some triangular rocks along the shore on the right. A small boat is floating in the water. There is a light blue sky in the background with a white cloud drifting above the lighthouse.
