Lot Essay

Born in New York in 1827, Elisha Taylor Baker spent his early years working in Connecticut whaling ports before deciding to pursue a career as an artist. In 1868, Baker established his first studio in New York and began travelling throughout New England, gleaning inspiration from the area's natural beauty. His luminous marine seascapes are included in the collections of prominent institutions, such as the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut, and the Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic, Connecticut.
