Nauset Light lighthouse at sunset with the moon and pink orange purple and blue sky, Eastham, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This lighthouse, which originally stood in Chatham, Massachusetts, is the inspiration for the logo on the Cape Cod Potato Chips bag. It was built in 1877 and was one of twin lighthouses in Chatham until 1923 when it was dismantled and moved to Eastham to replace the Three Sisters lighthouses. It received its distinct red and white paint in the 1940s. Coastal erosion threatened the lighthouse and in 1996 it was moved 300 feet all in one piece. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
This minimalistic composition of this landmark lighthouse will be at home whether your decorating tastes run to traditional or modern.
This image was exhibited at Morgan Stanley's NY headquarters in a show entitled Art@MS in 2017 where the original printed on beautiful aluminum sold.
