This painting was featured in our weekly email on 12/20/14 along with the following gallery comments:

George Herbert Baker was born in Muncie, raised in Richmond and was largely self-taught. He was the original outside artist, avoiding juried competitions (e.g. the Hoosier Salon where he only participated in five Salons) and even pointedly refusing a one-man show at the Richmond Art Association. Baker was known primarily as a colorist. His most advanced works support that characterization with a remarkably brilliant yet selective application of hue. Here we have a wonderful New England one-off, Marine Pulling Boat. Not typical – he certainly did harbor scenes but this tableau piece is outside of his usual setting. See the beautiful colorist aspects – striking applications throughout the painting. The work was cleaned and the original frame restored and re-leafed. (See below on that topic). A unique and nicely executed example by this vastly talented Richmond artist who always went his own way.
