One of America's prominent landscape and marine painters as well as teachers in the late 19th century, Robert Swain Gifford worked primarily in New York City with travels to many other locations. He was also one of the early artists into Alaska, going there in 1899 as a commissioned landscape painter for the Harriman Expedition, which traveled up the coast of Alaska as far as Plover Bay in Siberia.

He was born on a small island called Nonamesset, which adjoins Naushon in the chain of Eliz (showing 500 of 8336 characters).
