  "I love this painting. It is not only a beautiful scene of a harbor in the moonlight, it is a painting that tells a story. Every time I look at this work I see a different detail. As with any good piece of art, it attracts your attention to detail and challenges your imagination. What are all those people doing on the harbor at night? What cargo is being hauled? What a magnificent work of art."
