Here is a bio on Wilhelm from the internet: 

“Born in 1920, marine artist Joseph A. Wilhelm began his career as one of the country's preeminent marine ship modelers before turning to painting on canvas, an art he joked that was "easier on my eyes".  Influenced by a childhood spent along the Mississippi River, he started painting scenes that depicted the character and romance of the great merchant vessels that traded in the harbor of his hometown, New Orleans.  His sense of proportion, scale and understanding of ships, as well as his archive of research materials, enabled him to create paintings that were crisp, clean and very distinctive in their photo-realism.  His marine subjects, gathered from ports and harbors from New York to the Gulf of Mexico and down to the Panama Canal, captured the imagination of art critics, collectors and historians.  

He received numerous awards and was named a Patron Artist for the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut.  He was regularly commissioned to do portraits by steamship companies and collectors.  Self-taught, Wilhelm was widely regarded and respected as a teacher and mentor to many artists.  His well-known humor and personality made him one of the most popular artists in art galleries across the country.  Wilhelm died in 2003 at his home in Covington, Louisiana.”
