George Gale: ‘A Sea-nurtured Artist’

By Michael P. Dyer, Curator of Maritime History

George Gale: ‘A Sea-nurtured Artist’ is a completely fresh overview of the work of one of the last American artists to document the American whale fishery firsthand. George Gale was most famous for his etchings of maritime scenes, a superb selection of which can be seen here, with both physical descriptions of works and interpretive analysis of their subjects.
