John Orne Johnson Frost began his artistic career in his 70s after the death of his beloved wife, Anna. He did not view himself as an artist, but rather a historian recording history for future generations; untrained but driven by a sense of history that he expressed visually. He utilized materials found around his home; his works are either on blue-board or chip-board and his pigments are common house paints. Frost's post-Civil War boyhood memories of Marblehead and experiences aboard fishing schooners on the Grand Banks are the focus of his work. His art is more than charming and quaint as it details the daily life of Marbleheaders at home and at sea. Frost's work is recognized as a significant part of American folk art, and is represented in major folk art collections.
