The watercolor paintings of artist Francis Quirk. This is a collection of all of the watercolor images we could find. Francis J. Quirk is a nationally recognized artist with artworks in museums, universities, civic buildings and embassies around the world. He is perhaps the only painter with a portrait and self-portrait in the National Portrait Gallery. Quirk paintings can be found at the Canton Museum of Art, The Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame, Colby College, Ursinus College and Lehigh University.
As a Professor and Curator at Lehigh University, he was instrumental in expanding their significant art collection and Museum. That position was a platform for him to support and shine a spotlight on the arts in Pennsylvania in which he organized many exhibitions of important artists each year.
He maintained residences in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Maine.

  1. 1. The Watercolors of Francis J. Quirk Rhode Island School of Design Professor of Fine Arts Lehigh University Tiffany Fellow Ossabaw Island Foundation Grantee Maine, Pennsylvania and Arizona
  2. 2. Introduction In seeking to bring this lost master back into the light, we have begun building an image library of his work. This slideshow contains just the watercolors that we could find as of August 2017. It includes many works and studies that were sold as part of an auction in September 2016. The lesser works were included as they provide insights into his working methods. We thought about grouping the images by subject but ultimately decided to keep them in the random order. Where possible I have included some additional commentary.
