Description: Alexander Bower Am. 1875-1952 Portland Harbor 1920 Signed indistinctly "Alexander Bower" l.r. Oil on canvas 33 x 27 in. 83.8 x 68.6 cm Property of Lewis C. Allen, Boonsboro, Maryland A copy of a review of an exhibition of the work of Alexander Bower at the Portland Museum of Art in the Audience section of the Maine Sunday Telegram dated May 28, 1995 is attached verso. It reads in part, "The 45 works on view show an artist pf greater range than previously imagined, who was also capable of inspired, superbly handled paintings...Probably the most outstanding composition is Bower's "Portland Harbor" (1920), a robust image that includes barges, dredges, and a tug boat at work. This is a rare work in that the work-a-day world intrudes on the natural surroundings that usually make up the sum total of the artist's vision.

Condition Report: Good condition, good appearance, no apparent restoration when examined with a black light

Notes: Portland Harbor 1920

Artist or Maker: Alexander Bower

Literature: Oil on canvas
