Setting the Trawl in a Heavy Sea

On the Fishing Grounds

Unloading the Catch

The North Atlantic Ocean has been a place of much human drama over the
past 400 years - played out in large part by the fishing fleets of Gloucester, Massachusetts.

The vessels themselves were possessed of great power, speed, and beauty of design.
The men were intrepid as they set out in their dories to tend trawl lines day in and day out
in all but the most forbidding of weather conditions.

In this series of paintings I have portrayed various aspects of the
North Atlantic fishing as it was performed in the late 19th Century.
They are notable for their accuracy of detail - gathered from research and first hand accounts.
