Grant was a man of many talents, working in a variety of media ranging from oils and watercolors to etching and lithography, and his harbor scenes and clipper ships were executed with a crisp realism, capturing the subtleties of light and color. Fish Wharves, Gloucester is a quintessential example of Grant’s work, combining his acute knowledge of seagoing vessels with his appreciation for the picturesque. He skillfully captures the foggy harbor, the boats at anchor, the details of their rigging and the draping of the sails- a moment of calm in the early morning before the day's work commences.
