"John Whorf was one of the only living artists whose paintings actually sold during the Depression, according to my grandfather, Bob Vose, who had the pleasure of working with the artist during his lifetime. To this day, Whorf’s work continues to be very popular with collectors, most especially his sporting scenes and local depictions of both Boston and Cape Cod. Whorf studied extensively both here and abroad, and with regard to his watercolors, was particularly influenced by John Singer Sargent. He became a full National Academician in 1947, and his work hangs in numerous major museum collections across the country. Whorf delighted in capturing the picturesque cottages on the Outer Cape across the seasons, and in In Spring he masters the effect of dappled light on the clapboards and rooftop of an old farmhouse."
