John A. Noble

John A. Noble was born in Paris, the son of an American painter and moved with his family to New York in 1919. While there he spent a great deal of his free time, working for the McCarren Line Tugboats, which towed the wooden-hulled ships in New York Harbor. Following his graduation from school in 1931, he returned to France and studied at the University of Grenoble. Upon his return to New York he studied for a year at the National Academy of Design and worked in marine salvage at the coal docks in Bayonne, New Jersey. Noble spent the majority of his life drawing detailed lithographs on the passing of sail and the working life of the New York Harbor.
