Bright and bold oil painting on canvas board of a shipping boat in front of the dock. This wonderful expressionist painting by Rockport, Massachusetts painter, H. Robert Smith is a great focal point for any room - certainly perfect for a shore/beach house! The painting is nicely framed and is signed by the artist in the bottom right corner.
