The Wolf Rock lighthouse
A scene showing the Wolf Rock Lighthouse in the moonlight. Built 1862-1870 it is situated about eight miles off Land's End in Cornwall and is subjected to some of the worst weather conditions around the British Isles. At the time of this painting the lighthouse was lit with the original oil powered lamp. John Fraser came from a nautical family. His brother William went to sea and in 1890, at the age of 18, was washed overboard and lost while outward-bound for Australia. His older brother, Rodney, also went to sea and rose to become master but he too was later drowned. Fraser was one of several painters focusing on the effects of the sea and horizon, such as Julius Olsen and John Everett.
