William Harris was born in Birmingham in 1860. He began exhibiting in Birmingham from 1879 at a number of local galleries including the Royal Society of Artists Birmingham. He later moved to London for a time before settling in Eton Wick, Berkshire from 1890. Harris spent his time painting the views of Worcestershire, Berkshire, Surrey and Wales and specialised in river landscapes and marine scenes. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1889 and at the Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Glasgow Institute, Royal Hibernian Society and the Walker Art Gallery. By 1893, he had moved back to the Worcestershire area, living in Broadway.
Examples of his work are held by Chertsey Museum, Henley Town Council, Museum of Farnham and the National Trust.
The painting is housed in new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
