Frederick Judd Waugh

Frederick Judd Waugh (1861–1940), American artist noted for his marine studies.

Waugh was born in Bordentown, New Jersey. He studied under Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and, in 1882, went to study at the Academie Julien in Paris.

He lived on the Channel Island of Sark. In 1908 he moved to Montclair Heights, New Jersey but had no studio until collector William T. Evans offered one in exchange for one painting a year. Soon after, he moved to Bailey Island, Maine and later to Provincetown, Massachusetts.
