Gordon Grant, American, 1875-1962, "The Cove". This is a vibrant original watercolor by American artist Gordon Grant. The sight size is 14 1/2 x 21 1/4 inches, signed lower left, in a very fine gilt frame, identified with a label from Vose Galleries on the back of the frame. Gordon Grant was born in California and sent to Great Britain for his education. He worked as a staff artist for New York World and Harper's Weekly, covering both the Boer War and the Mexican Revolution, but became most widely known for his marine paintings and lithographs. He was a member of many artist's associations, including the National Academy of Design; American Federation of Art; Salmagundi Club; National Arts Club; American Watercolor Society; New York Society of Painters; and the New York Watercolor Club. In this painting he uses a beautiful palette of saturated blues and greens to create the sundrenched harbor scene.
