Frothy seas in Gifford's style add to the drama and movement in this masterpiece painting.​​

"Grand Manan" is a Gifford masterpiece from a private estate in pristine condition. Beautiful, contemporary gold leaf frame. Sister painting is exhibited at the New Bedford Whaling Museum in New Bedford, Massachusetts. 

This dramatic oil shows detailed figures in a fishing smack in the foreground — one perhaps anchored — in heavy seas with other sailing vessels in the background. Frothy seas in Gifford's style add to the drama and movement in this painting.
