Sale price$75,000.00


Jack Lorimer Gray, 1927-1981, was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Scottish parents. His talents as an artist were spotted by E. Wyly Grier while Gray was still a child. He attended the Nova Scotia College of Art for one year, but left to work on fishing boats. He was an excellent sailor, which is reflected in his paintings of fishermen, boats, and the piers and buildings of the waterfront.
The consignor states that his grandfather knew Gray and owned several of his oil paintings one of which was commissioned for The Detroit Athletic Club in Detroit, Michigan.  This impressive canvas, the fishermen are looking in the distance at what may appear to be a large wave coming toward them. In the mid 1950's Gray moved to New York City and initially painted boats in Flushing Bay. By the 1970s, Gray had many exhibitions of his works throughout the world. Although he painted on pre-made canvas board for some of his early works, he did hand-stretching of double-primed canvas for the majority of his output. All of his oil paintings have an inscription on the back about the location of the scene depicted, often in considerable detail.  The back of this painting has not be removed to verify this.
Dimensions are H-29.25" x W-41" x D-1.75"
