Patrick O’Brien, “On the Waterfront, Charleston in the 1880s,” oil on canvas, 24 x 36 in. This painting depicts the waterfront of Charleston, SC, in the 1880s. The artist based this view on extensive research with old maps, prints, and photographs from sources such as museums, state historical societies, and the Library of Congress. He also studied ships’ plans, sailing manuals, and maritime memoirs to accurately portray this busy harbor as it slowly recovered from the Civil War years.

“The Annapolis Invitational Marine Art Exhibition” is on view at the Annapolis Marine Art Gallery (Maryland) through May 26, 2019.
