This biography from the Archives of AskART:

A painter of seascapes, portraits, and figures, Safford's style is best described as romantic realism.  The rendition of a subject in its precise place, light and moment is interpreted through the artist's knowledge and appreciation for its uniqueness  Some of his paintings show a whimsical, fantastic interpretation of a scene but always true to the last detail.

Arthur Safford was born in Boston in 1900, graduated from the Alandale School of Art in Boston and was a student of Ernst L. Major, while attending the Massachusetts School of Art.  He received a Bachelors of Arts degree from Calvin Coolidge College in 1944, and a Masters in Philosophy of Art in 1948.  He was a member of the faculty at Boston College for eight years and taught artists and teachers alike.

For many years he had a studio and gallery in Boston and then in Rocky Neck since 1958, when he moved to Cape Ann.

Mr. Safford was a member and past president of the North Shore Art Association; member of the American Artist Professional League.

He died on September 28, 1992 and rests in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, East Gloucester.
