RS 4027


Edward Stratton Holloway was born in Ashland, Greene County, New York. He settled in Philadelphia and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he exhibited sporadically between 1881 and 1905. He worked as an art director for the publisher J. B. Lippincott Co. for forty-six years and wrote a number of books on interior design and antique furniture. Holloway also exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1897 and 1904, and at the National Academy of Design in 1888. He was awarded a bronze medal at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904.

Although there is no definitive evidence that Fishermen Unloading Their Boats represents a place in New Jersey, the site greatly resembles places on the South Shore where Holloway is known to have been active. He exhibited a Morning on the New Jersey Coast at the annual exhibition of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1887, and a Wildwood Beach at the annual exhibition in 1892 (both unlocated).
