  The voyage to Scotland around the southern tip of South America and across the Atlantic left a lasting impression and fascination
with the sea and sailing ships. He studied at Lambeth and Heatherly Art School in London.
He was a prolific painter and graphic artist of maritime subjects.
He spent much of his career working as an artist for journals and magazines including the
San Francisco Examiner and Chroncile newspapers.

  Gordon Grant was a painter, illustrator, lithographer and etcher.
His work is in the collections of the Kendell Whaling Museum, US Naval Academy, Mystic Seaport Museum,

Many works by Grant were purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art,

  Comments: A prolific marine artist and illustrator, his works have appeared in numerous publications and have been reproduced
extensively as prints. In 1899, he covered the Boer War in South Africa for Harper"s, and from 1901-09, he illustrated for Puck.
It was during the 1920s that his focus on naval and marine scenes began to win him wide recognition. Author/illustrator:
