About John Whorf

Watercolorist John Whorf’s paintings recall the work of John Singer Sargent and Frank Weston Benson. Whorf worked spontaneously and prolifically, making hundreds of landscape paintings of the New England seasons. A self-described conservative who despised abstraction, Whorf, was given his first solo exhibition at the Grace Horne Gallery in Boston when he was 21. Known during his lifetime as one of the greatest living watercolorists, Whorf was a resident of Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he painted many scenes of the Provincetown coast.

American, 1903-1959, Winthrop, Massachusetts, based in Boston, Massachusetts and Provincetown, Massachusetts
