This original Newport Rhode Island art print features a rainy evening in the skies over the Rose Island Lighthouse. This 1870 lighthouse was removed from service in the 1970s but thankfully it has been restored and kept in good repair by a local group who has preserved this historic light. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 and the lantern was re-lit in 1992 as a private aid to navigation. In addition to the light itself being historic, it's built on historic foundations. The curved wall you see is actually the southwest bastion of old Fort Hamilton.
I've depicted the historic Rose Island lighthouse with its steady red light against a backdrop of stormy skies. You can even see lighting on the horizon over the waters of Narragansett Bay. This particular subject was requested by more than one person and when I saw that beautiful mansard roof and the general Victorian style I was hooked! Not that lighthouses are ever a hard sell for me. I wish I had more time as they are a favorite subject. I've yet to see one big or tall, in ruins or well kept that I wasn't intrigued.
How about you? What attracts you to this Newport Rhode Island art print? Have you visited this lighthouse or do you simply love lighthouses in general, too?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
