George Parker Greenwood (1850-1904)
Return to Collection  :: Return to Four And Five-masted Vessels  

Parker Greenwood, like many members of his profession, started as a seafarer. It is likely that initially he sailed in and out of Liverpool, using it as a base between voyages. He is first listed in the Liverpool directories in 1882 as a mariner. Ten years later he is in the same directories as a marine artist. Greenwood painted during the transitional period between sail and steam, creating attractive ship portraits and views of Liverpool harbor with a native’s eye for its skyline, ferries, sailing barges and other small craft. The majority of his works feature soft pink tones of sunset or early dawn.
