About the artist (from Wikipedia):
Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, essayist and poet. During his lifetime, his early novels were popular, but his popularity declined later in his life. By the time of his death he had nearly been forgotten, but his masterpiece, Moby Dick — largely considered a failure during his lifetime — was “rediscovered” in the 20th century as a literary masterpiece.

Herman Melville was born in New York City on August 1, 1819, as the third child of Allan and Maria Gansevoort Melvill (Maria would later add an ‘e’ to the surname). One of his grandfathers, Major Thomas Melvill, participated in the Boston Tea Party. His father described the young man as being somewhat slow as a child, and Melville was also weakened by the scarlet fever, which permanently affected his eyesight.
