Luce Center Label

Herman Hartwich painted Sand Dune and Beach on Cape Cod, a great curling hook of land jutting out from the eastern coast of Massachusetts. In the nineteenth century the cape was a popular destination for tourists and artists, and the expressive brushstrokes and ragged margins suggest Hartwich painted these on the spot as studies for finished works.
