Biography Ralph Gray
Ralph Gray, a Boston native, was best known for his vibrant, expressive landscapes. He was by trade an architect and a watercolorist, having studied at both Harvard University and the Ecole des Beax-Arts in Paris. Gray painted often on Cape Cod, particularly during fruit-picking season at the cranberry bogs. A watercolor of this series, titled "Cranberry Bogs: Bright Weather", is held in the permanent collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
According to one critic of the time, "The beautiful purple-red coloring of the bogs made a handsome background and the industrious pickers, wearing brightly-colored handkerchiefs over their heads and kneeling at their job, were decorative as they were descriptive."
