Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Sale, Sotheby Parke-Bernet, New York, April 20, 1972, lot 179
    Acquired by the present owner from the above

    EXHIBITED:
    St. Louis, Missouri, The Art Collection of the St. Louis Exposition and Music Hall Association, Third Annual Exhibition, 1886, p. 35, no. 241.

    The title of the present work is a line from The Lights Far Out at Sea, a popular song by Sir Alfred Scott-Gatty, published by Merrs. Cocks & Co., New Burlington Street. Edward Moran originally exhibited this work at the St. Louis Exposition in 1886 with the following title:

    "Now in the gloaming and the hush,
    All nature seems to dream,
    And silently, and one by one,
    The soft lights flit and gleam.
    I sit and watch them from the shore
    Half lost in revery[sic],
    Till darkness hides the waves between
    The lights far out at sea."
