Description

The scene in this painting closely follows Lane’s pencil drawing Camden Mountains from the South Entrance to Harbor, 1855 (inv. 171) from his 1855 trip to Penobscot Bay in the company of Joseph L. Stevens, Jr. and Joseph S. Hooper. Stevens’s notes on the drawing state that Lane made the drawing “from the boat on our return to Rockland.” This is one of several subjects sketched by Lane while on a boat, in this case probably under way leaving Camden Harbor headed south-southeast. This location being in a harbor entrance channel, anchoring there would have been hazardous if not illegal.
