Grant, Gordon
American (1875-1962)
Watching the Sea
Oil on Board 20" x 24"

Grant’s life-long fascination with and interest in the sea began at an early age, when he made the voyage by boat from San Francisco to Scotland for his studies, and he went on to become a highly regarded illustrator, painter and etcher of nautical subjects. By 1895, after his return to the United States, Grant became a staff artist for newspapers such as the San Francisco Examiner, and his images also appeared in Harper’s Weekly. In 1906, Grant’s painting of the USS Constitution was hung in the White House after prints of the painting went on the market with much popularity.

Grant was a member of the Salmagundi Club, the Washington Watercolor Club, the Society of Illustrators, the Society of American Etchers, and Grant’s works are represented in many public collections including the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, the Library of Congress and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He also painted a mural for the Post Office in Kennebunkport, Maine.
