(1927-1981). Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Jack Gray studied art at the Nova Scotia College of Art, and continued his education at the prestigious Montreal Museum of Fine Art. He established a reputation for excellent marine paintings. His work is featured in many museums, including the Mariners Museum in Newport News, Virginia; Peabody-Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts; the Museum of the City of New York and the U.S. Marine Corps Museum and the Huntington Hartford Museum in New York.
