Nine views of various landmarks surround a scene of Bar Harbor. The granite peaks of Mount Desert Island, the promontory on the mainland across Frenchman Bay and the outlying Isle Au Haut were designated as a National Park in 1919. The noted 19th century artist Thomas Cole lived here. Both he and his student, Frederic Church, captured the beauty of these rocky shores in their paintings. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Town Views - United States , Maine
