Edgar Forkner was born in 1867 in Richmond, IN and was instrumental in the early development of that art colony. He relocated to Chicago around 1902 and ultimately, Seattle around 1912. His body of work contains some oil paintings but he is really remembered as a watercolorist. Today’s painting, Puget Sound Pier (our title) is a very representative example. The subject is classic Forkner – the Seattle waterfront. Executed in his typically loose style full of moody reflections, light and shadow. A solid work from a notable Richmond, IN artist.
