This website dedicated to the memory of the Tall Ship Bounty who lost her battle with Hurricane Sandy off Cape Hatteras in October of 2012.
 

"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, these see the works of the Lord and His wonders in the deep."
Psalm 107

 

     A native of Massachusetts, marine artist Paul Garnett is entirely self-taught. For seven years he served as the shipwright on Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's tall ship replica of the famous "Bounty" that was built for M.G.M.'s 1962 production of Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando.

His artwork has been featured in Nautical World Magazine, Marine Art Quarterly and Sea History Magazine. He has also had his paintings appear on A & E's Sea Tales as well as The History Channel's program History's Mysteries. The Clinton County Historical Society in New York licensed Battle of Valcour Island as a poster for their recovery project on the lake where the battle took place. This painting has also been used in Facts On File's Revolutionary War Almanac.

Art of the Sea has featured the artist's paintings five times over a number of years and the number 8 2006 edition of Denmark's Historie Magazine included the artist's Men Against the Sea as well as a painting of Joshua Slocum's Spray being featured in their #1 2014 issue.

Mr. Garnett's paintings have also been featured as the covers of the trilogy by naval historian William H. White about the War of 1812 A Press of Canvas, A Fine Tops'l Breeze and The Evening Gun.  Also, for Mr. White, the artist has produced covers for The Greater the Honor a tale of the Barbary Wars, In Pursuit of Glory, When Fortune Frowns, The Voyage of H.M.S. Pandora, Gun Bay and Sea History's Press Guide to the War of 1812.

Recently, Nicholas Nicastro's work Between Two Fires A Novel of John Paul Jones used Mr. Garnett's art for the cover. He has also done cover art for Telarc's Masters & Commanders CD recorded by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra conducted by the late great Erich Kunzel and for Secret Signs recorded by the Bow Triplets, an Irish/Celtic folk music group based in Europe.

The artist's originals can be seen at the J. Russell Jinishian Gallery in Fairfield, Connecticut, the Kensington-Stobart Gallery in Salem, Massachusetts, Art of the Sea Gallery in Thomaston, Maine and the Camden Falls Gallery in Camden, Maine. They have appeared in such shows as Modern Marine Masters at Mystic Seaport, Water Ways at Art of the Sea, Charlestown Then and Now at the Charlestown Naval Museum, Masters and Commanders at the Union League Club in New York City, Art of the Boston Waterfront at the John Stobart Gallery in Boston, as well as in the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport and the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York.

In July 2005, Mr. Garnett was involved in the National Juried Exhibition at the 12th Annual Maritime Art Exhibition at the Coos Art Museum in Oregon.

Mr. Garnett's work was also featured and auctioned at the Don Cesar Hotel on St. Petersburg Beach in the summer of 2002 when he was OP Sail's featured event artist at the gathering of Tall Ships.

Both the Constitution Museum in Charlestown and the Marine Museum in Fall River Massachusetts have permanent exhibits of his work, as do the Minnesota Maritime Museum, the North Carolina Marine Museum in Beaufort and, more recently, the National Coast Guard Museum.

The artist is also a longtime member of the National Maritime Historical Society, the International Society of Marine Painters and the Nautical Research Guild.

He works from his studio in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

"For a ship is the noblest of all man's works - a cunning fabric of wood, and iron, and hemp, wonderfully propelled by wings of canvas, and seeming at times to have the very breath of life."
Nordhoff and Hall, Mutiny On the Bounty
