GLOUCESTER, MASS. – Fitz Henry Lane (1804-1865) is best known for his marine paintings, but before working in oils he was a skilled printmaker. “Drawn from Nature & on Stone: The Lithographs of Fritz Henry Lane,” the first comprehensive exhibition focusing on this aspect of Lane’s career, is on view at the Cape Ann Museum through March 4. It features lithographs from the Cape Ann Museum’s own holdings and from collections throughout the region.
