Seascape
Seascape
Frederick Waughs father, Samuel B. Waugh, was a portrait painter and his mother,
Mary Eliza Young, a miniaturist. He and his half-sister became artists as well.
After training with Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts,
Waugh studied at the Academie Julian in Paris, but it was a trip to the Channel
Islands that imbued him with his love of seascapes. Eventually settling in
Provincetown, Massachusetts, he became the most popular marine painter of his
time. At the height of his popularity, he was painting 10 canvases a month to
met demand, yet also found time to write children's books, design silver and
copper objects d'art, and perform as a skilled architect.
