General note

Wesley Griffin (1880-1935) born on Grand Manan, he studied at the Los Angeles School of Fine Arts and the Art Students League in New York City, where he later taught. In 1926-27, he traveled abroad, studying and painting in Italy and France. As well as seascapes and sailing vessels, he was effective with portraiture, capturing fine nuances of concentration and emotion on the faces of ordinary people who lived in his native Maritimes. He had a home and studio at the end of The Whistle Road in North Head, Grand Manan. Source: The booklet The Grand Manan Bicentennial Art Show August 10-14, 1984, by Wade Reppert, President.
