Fitz Henry Lane Online Catalogue Receives Grant from the NEA

The Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester, Massachusetts is among the 2014 Grant recipients recently announced by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Museum is receiving funds

“to support development of the website, Fitz Henry Lane Online. This free and interactive searchable database will center on the paintings of 19th Century American painter Fitz Henry Lane (1804–65). Using the art objects as its foundation, the website will enable the viewer to explore the social, commercial, maritime, and artistic history of mid-19th Century New England by bringing together rare documents, high-quality images, and links to external resources from the collections of several different institutions.”

This important website is also receiving generous support from the Andrew and Betsy Wyeth Foundation for American Art.

panOpticon is proudly designing and building the Fitz Henry Lane website.
