Drew's travels in search of marine subjects took him from the south shore of his home state to the rocky shores of Maine and the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, which later inspired Fishermen in a Gale. The painting captures the dramatic skies and turbulent seas of the North Atlantic as the brave souls aboard the vessels ride out the storm. Drew passed away in Roxbury, Massachusetts.
This painting retains its original frame.
