This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Chicago, Galen Perrett spent much time in Rockport, Massachusetts where he became President of the Art Association in 1923, succeeding Harry A. Vincent and admired for his outgoing personality and for his dramatic seascape paintings. 

Of him, it was written: "His seascapes ran the gamut from peaceful days beside the ocean to dramatic stormy weather with deep, almost weirdly-menacing blue of sea and sky seeming to merge, at time, in threatening fury, while in the foreground green waves break in white foam on great rocks that repulse them so violently that they bound into the air, to burst in clouds of filmy spray---a remarkable study in contradictory motion and opposing forces." (Curtis, 95).

Galen Perrett was also known for his illustration skills as well as painting.  Perrett's art schooling including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Munich Academy and the Julian Academy in Paris.  He was a member of New York's Salmagundi Club and exhibited with the National Academy of Design.
