Do you enjoy autumn’s turbulent weather? Here, artist Robert Harris conjures a stormy shoreline scene in this atmospheric oil work from the late 19th century. Born in 1849, Harris emigrated from Wales to Prince Edward Island with his family as a child and later received his artistic training in London, England. Upon returning to Canada, Harris established a career painting portraits of politicians and other leading members of society. Despite his success in portraiture, Harris was continually drawn to the beauty of the Canadian landscape. This work is one example of the many Impressionistic landscapes he painted mainly for his own pleasure.
