From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: Samuel Gerry was a largely self-taught artist who spent most of his life in and around Boston. He was a prolific painter whose range of subjects included miniature portraits, landscapes and still lifes. He exhibited frequently at the Boston Athenaeum and was instrumental in founding the Boston Arts Club in 1854. This small luminous seascape was added to the collection by Dorothy Codman; it originally hung in her grandparents' home at 34 Beacon Street.
