Fort William Henry Hotel - Painting

Depicts a sailboat on a rough, windy lake. A smaller boat and shore appear on the right foreground with one thin tree blowing in the wind. In the background is a large hotel located on the edge of the water with small sailboats sailing in front. James Buttersworth, born in England, reflects the heritage of English marine painting in his works of art. By the 1850s, he had established a reputation in America through exhibits of his work at the American Art Union and lithographs of his paintings published by Nathaniel Currier. He came to be the best-known marine painter in America by the late nineteenth century. This painting is a departure from Buttersworth's usual views of yachting scene
