Harwich Lighthouse - John Constable

Harwich Lighthouse: John Constable

Harwich Lighthouse is an 1820 painting by English Romantic landscape artist John Constable. This work is located in the Tate Museum in London, England.

The Harwich Lighthouse, located in Harwich, Essex, England, is a historic maritime beacon that has played a crucial role in guiding ships safely through the treacherous waters of the North Sea for centuries.

Originally built in 1818, the lighthouse stands proudly on the coast, marking the entrance to Harwich Harbor and serving as a vital navigational aid for sailors. Its iconic white tower, standing at a height of 97 feet (30 meters), is visible from miles away, guiding ships through the often hazardous waters and into the safety of the harbor.
