Gurdon Trumbull, born in Stonington, Connecticut, was trained by landscape painters in Hartford and New York but became best known for his still life paintings of fish. Henry W. French, who chronicled the accomplishments of 19th-century artists in Connecticut, described Trumbull as “the finest fish-painter of America”; Trumbull’s fish paintings were exhibited at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876. Two of Trumbull’s paintings of fish swimming underwater were distributed as
chromolithographs much admired by sportsmen. During his transition from landscape painting to fish painting, Trumbull painted flowers. His flower paintings are rare but striking with crisp bright light and exceptional detail.
Exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1867, #355.
