American, 1903-1959

John Whorf was born in Winthrop, Massachusetts. His father, Harry C. Whorf was also an artist, who exposed him to commercial art and graphic design. He received official training at the age of fourteen under Shermann Kidd in the St. Botolph Studio and also the Boston Museum School. In 1917 in Provincetown, Whorf was inspired by a popular teacher, Charles W. Hawthorne, who painted in a bold and painterly style. He would become influenced by Provincetown’s growing art colony and become attracted to the Cape Cod landscape. He would become one of the most esteemed watercolorists of the first half of the twentieth century with his luminous painting style similar to that of John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer.
