Robert Salmon (Scottish, American, 1775 to circa 1851)

Robert Salmon was an important early marine painter active in America before Fitz Hugh Lane. His seascapes depend upon European compositional formulas, but possess a refreshing intimacy and immediacy. He eventually returned to his native Scotland.
