John Whorf Art

JOHN WHORF (USA, 1903–59)

John Whorf was a master watercolorist and a native of Boston. He was known for his depictions of genre subjects and views of harbors and beach scenes. He studied painting at the St. Botolph Studio and School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, and at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière and École Nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris. Whorf was awarded an honorary M.A. degree from Harvard University in 1938 and received a medal in 1938 and a prize in 1939 from the Art Institute of Chicago. His first exhibition of 52 paintings, when he was 20, sold out. After many years of traveling, Whorf spent the last years of his life in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and was part of its art colony for many years. He died there in 1959.
