William Bradford, 1823-1892, was an American romanticist painter, associated with the Hudson River School. In 1858, William Bradford art, New Bedford Harbor at Sunset was included in New Bedford Art Exhibition. He was known for his artworks of ships and Arctic seascapes. He went on several Arctic expeditions and was the first American artists to portray the frozen regions of the north. He compositionally balanced many of his paintings by creating a counter-subject and by placing darker colors, framing and counteracting the center's better-lit subject. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
