Salem Harbor is a stunning 26 1/8 x 42 in. (66.4 x 106.7 cm) seascape by the 19th-century American painter Fitz Hugh Lane. The original artwork was painted in 1853, and it now belongs to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Fitz Hugh Lane was one of the leading landscape artists of the 19th-century United States. His work was characterized by the aesthetic exploration of seascapes, a theme, and a genre that the artist dedicated his life to studying and perfecting. His pictures are marked by an impressive treatment and realistic brushwork, working with complex glazing and a progressive yet impactful color grading. Salem Harbor is an excellent example of how Fitz Hugh Lane’s oeuvre is able to fascinate any audience.
Salem Harbor was painted in a horizontal mid-sized canvas. When this picture was made, Hugh Lane had left his older job as a lithographer and was a full-time artist for around six years. In the early 1850s, he had already established a good contact with the art circuit, and collectors and art dealers were interested in his production. The view that Salem Harbor depicts is in Massachusetts Bay. It is predicted that the setting of this painting was around two to three miles from land. This way, Lane placed the audience amid the sea, as if the one contemplating the painting was sailing on an actual boat.
In the foreground of the composition, a sailor with black clothing and a cap is rowing on a small boat with a log tied to it. The sea was painted with dark green water, which reflects the image of the large ships, painted with extreme detail and accuracy. To both sides of this small boat approaching the audience, there are two other bigger boats with visible workers wearing red. These small ships were all built with dark brown wood, and their surfaces and material appear to be very smooth.
Beyond this smaller boat, there is a group of vast ships, the biggest of them positioned to the left, with many sails and made of dark material. Progressively, more vessels appear in the distance from the public, bringing balance to the composition. Finally, fainting, the horizon of the mainland is visible, alongside a beautiful sky with sprawling white clouds.
