Biography Galen Perrett
From Chicago, Galen Perrett spent much time in Rockport, Massachusetts
where he became President of the Art Association in 1923, succeeding
Harry A. Vincent and admired for his outgoing personality and for his
dramatic seascape paintings.
Of him, it was written: "His seascapes ran the gamut from peaceful days
beside the ocean to dramatic stormy weather with deep, almost
weirdly-menacing blue of sea and sky seeming to merge, at time, in
threatening fury, while in the foreground green waves break in white
foam on great rocks that repulse them so violently that they bound into
the air, to burst in clouds of filmy spray---a remarkable study in
contradictory motion and opposing forces." (Curtis, 95).
