Born in 1875 in San Francisco, Gordon Grant, traveled to Great Britain for his formal education, and then studied art at Lambeth and Heatherley in London. After his return to San Francisco, he worked as an illustrator and a correspondent artist for various newspapers in the area. Covering the Boer War and the Mexican Revolution, his images came East and appeared in Harper’s Weekly in New York. Eventually, Grant, established himself as an outstanding illustrator of books. His lithographs, etchings, oils, water colors, and drawings of life on the seven seas and the vessels that sailed them, prove Grant, to be one of the foremost American marine artists. He was a member of the National Academy of Design, American Watercolor Society, the Salmungudi Club, National Arts Club, Allied Artists of America, New York Water Color Society, Chicago Society of Etchers and the Philadelphia Water Color Club. Beautiful scene, clean, only very light toning from age. When framed, will look fine on any wall. Frame shown not included. (#16102a) (VG).
