Biography  
Clement Drew


Born in Kingston, Massachusetts, Clement Drew settled in Boston and became a marine painter of harbor scenes and vessels at sea, especially in rough oceans. Most of his marine paintings were done between 1838 and 1886, and his earliest paintings were views of Boston's south shore. He later traveled extensively, from Maine to the Grand Banks off Newfoundland, to Cape Horn and then San Francisco.

He held many jobs besides that of artist and began working in Boston in a dry goods store in 1827. He also worked in a library, sold carpets, and had his own store to do framing and sell art supplies. He was also an abolitionist joining forces with William Lloyd Garrison in the fight to end slavery.
