Description:
Alfred Wordsworth Thompson (American, 1840-1896) A Moroccan Coastal Scene signed and dated 'Wordsworth Thompson 91' (lower left) oil on canvas 19¼ x 32 in. (48.3 x 81.3 cm.) Painted in 1891. Lot Notes It is likely Thompson painted this charming coastal scene alongNorth Africa's Moroccan coast. Thompson spent many years travelingto foreign locales such as Asia Minor, Morocco and Spain where hewould sketch and paint what he saw. Caroline Williams says the viewof the mosque dome and the mountains in the background, along withthe palm trees and the agaves all combine to suggest the scene isset in Morocco rather than any of the other places that Thompsonvisited.
