Description
Renowned marine artist Charles Woodbury (1864-1940) began his now famous Ogunquit, Maine, art school in 1898, the anniversary of which this book celebrates. Woodbury's Ogunquit shore scenes earned him a reputation as the "heir" of Winslow Homer, and he became the foremost of his generation at painting the interaction of elemental forces where land meets sea. By age 30, he was recoginized on both sides of the Atlantic as a leading American artist of the day. Woodbury's Ogunquit school was an immediate success, attracting 60 to 100 students each summer, and established the coastal community as a center for fine art. On land acquired from the Woodbury family is the Ogunquit Museum of American Art.
