Loading

""

Lemuel D. Eldred (1848-1921) was an American painter known for his coastal and marine-themed works. Eldred grew up in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, near the whaling town of New Bedford. There is little known about his life other than that he studied at the Academie Julian in Paris, France, in 1880. He was mainly a self-taught artist but did study under the authority of the artist Caleb P. Purrington. His fascination for the ocean stemmed from his father having a career in boat making. Eldred was known to paint scenes of the New England coast and ships. His works were often truthful representations of nature. During his life, he traveled internationally to countries such as Italy, Northern Africa, and Spain but also domestically. Here he traveled around Maine, Boston, and New York. In the latter half of Eldred’s career, he studied at the National Academy of Design. He opened a studio in Boston in 1875. He died in 1921.
