- I am so thrilled to see this maritime oil painting by my great grandfather, Arthur Beecher Carles, Sr.!
I have many of his maritime etchings and watercolors but have never seen an oil. My father, D. Craig Johns, also a painter, always talked about his grandfather's oil paintings of ships that hung in their house in Philadelphia when he was growing up. He always regretted that his mother, Sara Carles Johns, also a painter, student of her brother, Arthur B. Carles Jr. and others at PAFA and teacher at The Barnes Foundation, had not kept those paintings.
