Waugh has been able to portray on canvas the majesty and power and dignity of the ocean as does Bennett Bradbury, and I consider him to be the greatest living marine painter today." Original price "$1,150" sticker still on back of frame. Brother of famous Science Fiction writer, Ray Bradbury whose works include "I Robot" made into movie with Will Smith. Large Size 47" wide by 30" H. (image size) approximately 57" by 40" including 5" frame. Highest auction price for artist is $17,250, studio prices can be much higher.
