Edmond Fitzgerald was born in Seattle in 1912 and died in Cincinnati in 1989. In between those dates he became a skilled painter, associated today with a wide range of subject matter including sea and landscapes, portraits, and genre. He studied with Mark Tobey and was a friend of the Alaskan artist, Eustace Paul Ziegler. Fitzgerald traveled far and wide in the United States, having painted in coastal New England, along the Hudson, Ohio, and the Northwest and Alaska. He is most closely associated today with the Northwest school. This example, 24" by 10" and 29" by 15 1/2" framed, still bears the fragile label with the artist's name, and another tattered label (I've saved the fragments in an envelope) shows that this was entered at the prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York. I would imagine that it was painted after the war, likely the 1950's or first half of the 1960's.
