Artist's Description

The Grand Point au Sable Light Station (Big Sable Point Light Station) is located on the Lake Michigan shoreline, two miles from Ludington State Park. In 1866 the U.S. Congress appropriated $35,000 for this lighthouse and it was built the following year. The complex consists of a conical brick tower, encased in black and white steel-encased plates, and a keeper’s residence. The tower, which stands one hundred twelve feet to the top of the ventilator ball, is nineteen feet, two inches in diameter at the base, and thirteen feet, four inches in diameter at the parapet. The lantern houses a Third Order Fresnel lens that bears the inscription “Sautter and Co., Constructeurs.” The classic beauty of this lighthouse is timeless, and this portrait captures that timeless beauty.
