Frederick Judd Waugh was a marine painter born in Bordentown, New Jersey in 1861. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts with Thomas Eakins, and at the Academie Julian in Paris with Adolf-William Boulanger and T. Robert-Fleury (1888-1889). Waugh became inspired to become a marine painter while sailing from France. His paintings depicted the New England Coast in Provincetown (MA) and on Monhegan Island (ME).
He was a member of the Royal Academy, Bristol, England; Associate (1909) and Academician (1922) of the National Academy of Design; Salmagundi Club; Lotos Club; National Arts Club; fellow, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art; Boston Art Club; Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts; Washington Art Club; North Shore Art Association (1924); American Federation of Art; and more.

Frederick Waugh is best known for his ocean views that depict active waves crashing against jagged rocks along the New England coast. His views, like the one offered here often show close up views of waves, rock with little sky. They are a testament to nature's glory and might.
Waugh exhibited extensively in the Paris Salons prior to exhibiting throughout the United States. By the time he died in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in 1940 he was widely recognized for his dramatic oil seascapes.
