This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Joe Vaughan and published June 3, 2009 on the blog

Checking over my 40 year old notes, I'm reminded that I have three connections to marine artists. First is John Popeye Arnold; second is Montague Dawson; third is someone I will not name. Coming from the former world famous whaling port of New Bedford, Massachusetts, I have always been interested in marine art, as you can tell if you manage to squeeze into my basement hide-away.

John Popeye Arnold, alias Jay Arnold, alias J. Arnold (as he signs his paintings) is (20th Century) a marvelous painter who likes to paint whale ships. I have one of his many paintings labeled Yankee Whalers that show the Charles W. Morgan and three other whalers cavorting in the Southern Seas.

When I was a child the Charles W. Morgan was berthed in New Bedford, and my Uncle Allen would often take me to play on the ship. That's probably where I got my feel for things connected with the whaling industry. (Of course, now I love the whales and do whatever I can to help them survive the Japanese, Norwegians and others who violate the no-whaling treaties.)

I love to reread and reread Moby Dick and those that know me in Puzzle organizations know that my "nom" is Ahab. For years, I had AHAB as my license tag, until the MVA would not let me renew it because I had had it too long! Now I believe someone else has it. When I had the tag and we would visit the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the curator would ask me to park out front in a special spot so that tourists could see it.

The Charles W. Morgan was "stolen" (in my opinion) by Mystic seaport and can be seen there. The ship has historic significance because it was the last whaler sailing out of New Bedford to make any money.

Back to Mr. Arnold. I'll be darned if I can find much information about him, but I do know that his paintings bring big bucks at auctions. I don't care.. I love my painting and would not give it up for any amount of money.
