Henry Harris was landscape artist born at Cullompton, Devon in 1852. He was the son of a miller and was one of 15 boys in the family. One of his brothers George (fl. 1880-1900) was also an artist. By 1871, he was working full time as an artist and had moved to Bristol where he lived with his wife Barbara and his two children in the St George area of Bristol. He spent most of his life in Bristol and lived at St Marks Place and Redcliffe Place. Harris not only spent his time painting views of his local landscapes but he also travelled to Scotland and Wales capturing scenes of interest. One of his favourite areas was Chepstow and Tintern Abbey. Harris developed a highly distinctive style of painting which is easily recognisable particularly in his treatment of trees and shrubs. He died in Exeter in 1926.
An example of his work can be found at the Newport Museum and Art Gallery.
The work is housed in a new, English made frame which is in excellent condition.
