Born in Boston, Tom Crotty moved to Maine in 1964 and began a career which established Tom as one of Maine's foremost landscape artists. The Portland Museum of Art hosted a major retrospective of Tom's work in 2003-2004. Several of the paintings for sale here were part of the PMA exhibition and are the property of one of Tom's largest collectors.
Here is a link to a beautiful video made by Tom and his son David of the PMA exhibition, "A Solitude of Space: Thomas Crotty at the Portland Museum of Art."
