Meheren Cabin, Auk Bay by Theodore R. Lambert

Meheren Cabin, Auk Bay by Theodore R. Lambert, Oil on board, 1936, JDCM 2012.01.001.

Regarded as one of Alaska's premier painters, Ted Lambert is not as well known in Southeast Alaska, largely because he spent nearly all his artistic career in the interior. In 1936 he visited Juneau and made a painting of the Meherin Cabin in Auke Bay showing Cognan Island, with Mansfield Peninsula in the distance. The chance to acquire a work by this artist, depicting a local scene is really the perfect opportunity for the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.
