'House of Refuge' Stuart, Florida Original Impressionist Oil by Robert C. Gruppe



This bold impressionist style painting by renowned Gloucester artist Robert C. Gruppe depicts the 'House of Refuge' in Stuart Florida, a landmark and the only one still existing out of ten originally built along the coast in the 1870s to save shipwrecked sailors. This painting is one of a few Robert Gruppe has painted of this motif and in our opinion the best. The 25 x 30 inches oil painting is signed and offered without frame.
