Thomas Crotty (American, 1934-2015): Marine landscape with white dingy, Oil on board, signed and dated.

Crotty was known for his highly realistic oil-on-canvas images of Maine, including vast winter scenes and sprawling seascapes. The paintings spoke to two strong currents in Crotty’s life: His love of the sea and his desire for solitude, both of which were embodied in his love of sailing. His paintings incorporated Maine’s natural light and beauty at all hours of the day and in all seasons. He was also the owner/director of the highly regarded Frost Gully Gallery in Portland and Freeport, ME.

Size: 23.5 x 47.25 inches/ 29.5 x 53.5 inches frame.

Provenance: The consignor reports that the painting was purchased from the artist by his parents, who were Summer residents of Maine, and friends of the artist and his wife.
