Biography   George Ropes


From Salem, Massachusetts where he spent his entire career, George Ropes, who was deaf from birth, specialized in ship portraits.  His work can be found at the Peabody Museum.  Among his ship subjects are The Guerriere and The Constitution, relating to a marine battle between Britain and America.

Ropes, one of nine children, had an interest in nautical subjects from his childhood as his father was a sea captain.  In 1897, when Ropes was 19 years old, he began supporting the family because his father died at sea. 

He began his career as a sign and carriage painter in Salem and also did landscapes.  His teacher, beginning 1802, was Michele Felice Corne (1742-1832) from Rhode Island.    ...  Displaying 750 of 1114 characters.
