John Rogers painting
Dear Mr. Moore just saw your inquiry about my father John Rogers. He was friends with your grandfather for many years. They sketched together and after your grandfather retired he acted as my fathers art agent for a number of year. I remember your grandfather fondly and would welcome hearing from you.

Artist John Rogers
I am trying to find out information about an artist whose name is John Rogers. I have a lovely watercolor which I inherited from my grandfather, David H. Moore. I thought it might be of a Long Island NY lighthouse, but an online search would not allow that conlusion. Although the water color is not signed, it is stamped "all reproduction rights reserved John Rogers" on it's back. I thought that John Rogers might have been a friend of my grandfathers and that they might have painted together with my grandfather painting more on an amateur basis. I really don't know, but I would like to find out about the artist, if it's possible. This is a very lovely watercolor. Mature style. Visual elements have been reduced to their simplist level - perhaps it could be described as stylized. There are a small amount of dunes in the foreground. The light house is almost centered and is white. The tower is fairly broad, like it is not particularly tall. There is a very modest structure attached - not like some which have a whole house. This looks more like a room attached. There is a walk way or bridge (angle of dunes doesn't let viewer have a clear view) to the building. There are two figures leaning on the rails, as if looking out to sea. The sky is very prominent - dark blue like a sense of storm coming in. There are a few gulls. The building and lighthouse are all white with simple brown roofs. Anything you might be able to share would be appreciated. All the best, Pete
