Biography  
Sears Gallagher


An American Master of Watercolor and Etching by Peter Hastings Falk, 1999.


Sears Gallagher was a Boston painter who is counted in the pantheon of the first generation of the "Boston School" that included Edmund C. Tarbell, William M. Paxton, Joseph R. DeCamp, Frank Benson, Philip L. Hale, and Herman Dudley Murphy. While these artists built their careers on a foundation of portraiture and still life painting, Gallagher pursued a different route. In contrast, he focused on watercolors and etchings to create landscapes and marine scenes. In this pursuit he was a pioneer of his time.

Watercolor painting would not be widely appreciated until the 1890's even though the American Water Color Society was founded in New York  ...  Displaying 750 of 27443 characters.
