Most of his paintings were done with a palette of subtle pale greens, lavenders, muted blues, and buffs, colors associated with the haziest of Southern California days. Harris won over 100 awards during his career, which he began as an illustrator. He came to the United States in 1904 and settled in Los Angeles where he studied at the local Art Students League and Cannon Art Schools with Hanson Puthuff, F. Tolles Chamberlin and Stanton MacDonald-Wright. For many years he taught art privately and at the Chouinard Art School.
He worked as an illustrator including posters of the Southwest for the Santa Fe Railroad. In the 1920s and 30s, he and Hanson Puthuff went on many painting trips into Arizona and California. He reportedly had a magnetic, colorful personality and strongly disavowed modernist in art. · About Bradley Fine Art.We have very high standards for the items we sell.
