Boston Harbor is a fascinating 66.04 x 106.68 cm (26 x 42 in.) oil on canvas by the 19th-century American Painter Fitz Hugh Lane. The original piece belongs to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Fitz Hugh Lane was a painter associated with Luminism, an informal circle of painters highly influenced by the Hudson River School. The Luminists focused on landscape painting as their older counterparts did, but they were highly exceptional in the depiction of lighting, which often gained a Romanticism aspect on their works. Lane's pictures embody the beauty and complexity of lighting, reflection, and mood. Boston Harbor is among the painter's best-known pieces and perfectly shows his oeuvre's aesthetic qualities.
Boston Harbor depicts a seascape, one of the Luminist's favored subjects. But the interest in marinas and the depiction of the sea dated way back in Fitz Hugh Lane's life. First and foremost, his family lived in a region near Gloucester's waterfront. But also, his father was a sail-maker, and it seems like this was supposedly Fitz's future career, hadn't he developed an earlier paralysis problem with his legs. This is also the hypothesis for his early interest in art: since he couldn't participate in games and play with other children, he soon became entranced by drawing.
In the 1850s, Fitz Hugh Lane was at his career's peak when he had long established his mature style. As the title indicates, the painting depicts a harbor. The horizon line is low, enabling Lane to portray an expansive view of the harbor. Some institutions found in the city at the horizon, such as the Old State Church and the Massachusetts State House, can faintly be seen in the distance. The horizon shows a warm, bright yellow light that contrasts with the cooler, blue edges of the canvas. Gradually, the sky goes from yellow and pink to a pale blue.
There are many ships depicted, enhancing the sense of the harbor's grandeur. They go from bigger ships with many sails to smaller ones such as fisher boats. Contrasting with the soft and grading surface of the sky, tiny ripples of all sizes take the sea. The water beautifully reflects the bright sky in orange tones, along with black and dark gray shadows on its most distant corners.
