Frederick Judd Waugh
Frederick Judd Waugh (September 13, 1861 in Bordentown, New Jersey – September 10, 1940) was an American artist, primarily known as a marine artist. Waterscapes illustrates the breadth of approaches that he took in his studies of the major focus of his art. As a developing artist, Waugh explored a range of compositions from pastoral scenes to cityscapes, but his primary subject remained the sea. Waugh is generally considered one of America’s great marine painters. The works in this exhibition demonstrate his deft handling of light, tone and texture, and his ability to convey the sublime force of nature at moments of turbulence and repose.
