”The Bay and Harbor of New York” by Samuel Waugh (1814-1885), depicting the Junk Keying in New York harbour in July 1847 (watercolor on canvas, c.1853-1855, Museum of the City of New York).

Samuel Waugh (1814 in Mercer, Pennsylvania – 1885) was a 19th-century painter.

He became one of the most famous portrait painters of Philadelphia. He was also known for his Italian panoramas, most of which he created during an eight-year stay in Italy.

His son Frederick Judd Waugh (1861–1940), born in New Jersey, is best remembered as a marine painter; his grandson, Coulton Waugh, was also an artist, known for his work on the comic strip Dickie Dare.
