The sun rises on the New Jersey Palisades with American ships moving slowly along the still water of the Hudson River Valley. In the distance, at left, is a lighthouse and, at right, a town on the Jersey shore.
This exceptional large view is by Alexander Charles Stuart, 1831-1898. Stuart is recorded as a marine artist who spent his life along the Delaware Valley area where he painted ship portraits. The oil on canvas is a panorama of river life activities and a testament to the prosperous commerce of the period.
