Return to Collection  :: Return to Three-masted Vessels  

Considered an American master painter of maritime and arctic scenes, William Bradford grew up in Fairhaven and New Bedford, Massachusetts. For several years he shared a studio and studied with Dutch artist Albert van Beest where they collaborated on several paintings. The works Bradford is best remembered for are based on a series of voyages he made to the arctic during the 1860ís as well as views of whalers and coast shipping. In the 1880ís, Bradford traveled widely in Europe where he exhibited at the Royal Academy and in North America where he painted for a time in San Francisco.
