Syracuse By Moonlight by Johann Culverhouse (1871) – “With the construction of the Erie Canal, Syracuse became a booming center of industry and commerce. Downtown Syracuse was built around the Canal which bisected the city.  Born in Rotterdam, Johann Culverhouse (1820-1895) was a successful painter who began working in the United States in 1843. He established himself in New York City, where he painted charming scenes of people at work and play. His work is in the Dutch tradition of genre painting made famous by Vermeer.“  Original painting is part of the Onondaga Historical Association.
