George Chambers Paintings in

George Chambers (1803-1840) painted maritime scenes with identifiable landmarks on shore.  Rather than just show the majesty of a vessel at full sail mastering the open seas, his views make a connection between we land-based observers and the instruments that can carry us to all points on the globe.  Harbors are of particular interest as the transition point for our modes of being.
