Life Saving Patrol (1893) by Edward Moran

Edward Moran (1829-1901) was an American painter known mostly for his maritime paintings. His painting Life Saving Patrol shows a man on a moonlit night with a lantern and a small dog walking along the beach looking out to sea. Although the moon is shining through the clouds, we get the impression there was a storm earlier and the man is looking for possible shipwrecks or victims of the storm.
