Biography Earl Cunningham
Nicknamed 'The Dragon of St. George's Street, Earl Cunningham is notable as an eccentric artist who literally chased away customers. He is best known as a marine painter and worked mostly in Florida and Maine from the 1920s to the 1970s. His style combines naïve and fauve.
A semi-literate, self-taught painter, Cunningham wandered the country during the early part of the 20th century. His art focused on the simple and colorful everyday life, and has been associated with the works of American Folk Artists such as Grandma Moses, Morris Hirschfield and Lawrence Lebduska. Cunningham painted outside the established discipline of his day, and proclaimed himself a 'Primitive Artist'.
