After the Catch, Gloucester, Massachusetts is a vibrant rendition of an activity Grant and his contemporaries would have encountered quite often along the docks and wharves of the bustling fishing community. Schooled in the European academic tradition, Grant brought to his canvasses an intelligent and disciplined feeling for composition, form and color. This scene was likely painted from East Gloucester looking across the water to the familiar clock tower of Gloucester City Hall.
