- Original oil paintings by Gerdus Bronn
The painting is very typical of that part of Mauritius. The Lighthouse of Pointe aux Caves (Albion) is situated on the West Coast of Mauritius, and is an emblem for that region. The lighthouse began construction in 1909 and was finally inaugurated in 1910. The structure rises up to 30 Meters high and offers an excellent view over the region
These must definitely be the reasons why Albion Lighthouse (also known as Pointe-aux-Caves) has been the star of various movies and short films during recent years; it does depict a perfect mariners’ scene! This iconic emblem of sea-travel is located on the west coast of Mauritius and dates back to over a century old (completed in 1910). Believe it or not; it still offers navigation assistance to ships approaching the coasts of Mauritius. In fact, it is the only fully-operational lighthouse in Mauritius as of today. You will notice that it flashes twice, every 10 seconds for signal purposes.
I added lots of texture to the painting. The sky is done very well. This is a great painting for a corporate office or a stunning villa anywhere.
In Mauritius we will hand deliver the painting. and hang it for you
