"THE OLD CITY GATE, ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA - 1893" IN OIL PAINTING ON PANEL
Unsigned, after the 1893 photograph by John L. Stoddard for "Portfolio of Photographs of Famous Cities, Scenes and Paintings"
Item # 906TYX05P 


An intricate and very finely detailed scene that replicates the 1893 photograph by John L. Stoddard in his volume "Portfolio of Photographs of Famous Cities, Scenes and Paintings" published by the Werner Company of Chicago. The scene is executed on a dense mahogany panel with gently bevelled rear edges, set inside carefully painted black framed lines hidden just behind the edge of the frame. The level of precise detail is rather breathtaking in the few expert spaces: the walls, the horse, the carriage and the seated riders.

Built by the Spaniards during the 16th century to protect the settlement of St. Augustine, the wall stretched from shore to shore across the peninsula, but now at the head of St. George Street these Old City Gate is all that remains.

Measurements: 7" H x 9 1/2" W [panel]; 11 5/8" H x 14" W [frame]
