A gem of a coastal view, possibly Monhegan. Boston artist Sears Gallagher was born in West Roxbury, a descendent of Governor William Bradford. His artistic talents were encouraged by his parents, and while attending Boston English High School, he also took evening classes at the Hawes Evening Art School. His teachers included George Bartlett and Samuel Triscott. Even as a student, Gallagher made frequent painting trips to the Maine coast. He first visited Monhegan Island in 1890, and spent more than fifty summers there. He also painted in the White Mountains, and in Europe. Gallagher exhibited at the Boston Art Club, the American Watercolor Society, the Guild of Boston Artists, the Pennsylvania Academy, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
