Big Sister (Gordon Grant)
[RARE]
$115.00

"Big Sister" by Gordon Grant (1875-1962). Grant was born in San Francisco and was sent to school in Scotland. The voyage to Scotland around the southern tip of South America and across the Atlantic left a lasting impression and fascination with the sea and sailing ships. He studied at Lambeth and Heatherly Art School in London. He was a prolific painter and graphic artist of maritime subjects. He spent much of his career working as an artist for journals and magazines including the San Francisco Examiner and Chroncile newspapers. Gordon Grant was a painter, illustrator and an author of several books of maritime lore. His work is in the collections of the Kendell Whaling Museum, US Naval Academy, Mystic Seaport Museum, New York Historical Society and New York Public Library. He received many awards and received a medal at the Paris Salon of 1937. Many works by Grant were purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Library of Congress and his work hangs in the White House, Washington D.C. This piece was published over 40 years ago and is in mint condition. Gordon Grant was prolifically published "back in the day", but his works are now difficult to locate. They are real gems; very stylized and dramatic, while maintaining accuracy...because the man lived what he painted! Print image size 9" x 13 1/2". Only one in stock.
