Like many of his contemporaries, he then went abroad to further his artistic education, visiting London and Paris before returning home and establishing his studio in Philadelphia. Briscoe made several more ocean voyages during his career, experiences that inspired the dramatic seascapes and shipping scenes for which he is today best known. The weather was an especially important factor in his work, whether capturing fishermen returning after a long day’s work under calm, luminist skies to his paintings of storm-tossed ships and sailors at the mercy of the wind and waves."
