Gerald H. Taber

d. 1982

Gerald Taber kept a studio in the Grainery on Old South Wharf.

Gerald Taber was well known as an artist - an experienced portraitist and an artist member of Portraits, Incorporated, of New York city. His crayon portraits of children interpreted all of the delicacy and charm that children possess. In addition, Mr. Taber was also a landscape painter of maritime and Nantucket fog scenes.

In the 1960s that included three-paneled screens - showing a foggy wharf scene from whaling days; another a fish-eye view of fish swimming in a restful green sea; and a “pure fantasy” scene of the foot of Main Street about 1820, with ships in the harbor.
