Artist Jim DeWitt
Jim DeWitt gained world renown for his paintings of racing yachts. They reflect his many years as a sailing champion on San Francisco Bay and abroad. He is most notable for his America's Cup™ artwork. In 1992, Jim DeWitt was named America's number-one marine artist by the America's Cup Art Gallery in San Diego. In 2012, Jim was artist-in-residence at the Golden Gate Yacht Club, host of the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco.
His paintings have a powerful contemporary feeling that captivates the viewer, draws them in, and holds their attention. Action, drama, and Jim's zest for life in general are captured in his signature style, recognizable details surrounded by spirited and colorful abstractions. Besides racing yachts, Jim paints a wide range of subjects, including landscapes, florals, figures, and lately, dogs!
