Charles Robert Patterson (1878 - 1958) reinvigorated nautical painting by combining nearly a decade of seafaring experience with academic art training. From 1920 until his death he created more than 400 canvases portraying the ocean and its shipping as only professional mariners like himself ever saw it. His works captured the immensity of the sea while accurately rendering the glory of square-rigged ships, workaday schooners, modern and historic warships, and yachts. In the years between the two world wars he became the "Sailor-Painter." His vision of the ship under sail has influenced every generation of nautical artists following in his wake.
