Footnotes

  • Born in Philidelphia, Thomas Alexander Harrison spent most of his working life in France. In 1879, he moved to Paris, where he attended the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts under such luminaries as Jules Bastien-Lepage. Like many of his contemporaries, Harrison was drawn to the coastal towns and beaches of Brittany, working at Pont-Aven and Concarneau, where his early work included Castles in Spain (1882, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), a figurative work which clearly demonstrates the influence of Bastien-Lepage's naturalism. He also produced a series of sparkling wave scenes, perhaps the most famous of which, The Wave (1885) now hangs at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
