    Lowell Birge Harrison ( 1854-1929)- an American genre and landscape painter, teacher, and writer. He was a prominent practitioner and advocate of Tonalism.

    "Technique should always hide itself modestly behind the thing expressed." (c)
    Lowell Birge Harrison


    ***

    L.Birge Harrison, 1914



    "Born in Philadelphia, Birge Harrison was the brother of artist T. Alexander Harrison. He studied first at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1874, and later credited Thomas Eakins as a positive influence on his own teaching style. He then went to Paris on the advice of John Singer Sargent to study with Carolus-Duran and at the École des Beaux-Arts under Cabanel. In 1881 Harrison exhibited at the Paris Salon, and in 1882 his Salon entry, "Novembre" became one of the first paintings by an American artist to be purchased by the French government.

    November,1881



    Discussing the painting years later Harrison attributed its handling to "A Scandinavian painter (who) had shown me the secret of atmospheric painting....and....the importance of vibration and refraction in landscape painting." The paintings of this period included peasant subjects that showed the influence of Jules Bastien-Lepage. The limited palette and wistful mood of the early works would continue to be distinguishing features of Harrison's later landscape paintings.

    At this time he spent his summers working in Brittany and Giverny in Normandy.

    He traveled extensively in India, Australia, Asia and Africa during which time he did illustrative work for Scribner's, Century and Harper's magazine. Upon returning to the United States, he painted tonalist-style landscapes and city scenes. A critic once said "Harrison understood the narrative content in order to emphasize the landscape's decorative and emotional elements. He imparted a theme of transience in his works by the barrenness imparted in his paintings." Often this melancholy mood was reinforced by a solitary figure, often pensive and withdrawn.

    Silence,1890




    ***
    Harrison met the Australian painter Eleanor Ritchie in the course of his summer landscape travels; they married and returned to America, where he began to exhibit annually at the National Academy of Design, and after 1889 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Temporarily forced to stop painting on account of ill health, he spent considerable time between 1889 and 1893 traveling in Australia, the South Seas, and New Mexico, and wrote and illustrated articles for publication.

    In 1891 Harrison and his wife moved to California, but after her death in 1895 while expecting their first child, Harrison remarried and moved to Plymouth, Massachusetts, where he became a leader of the Tonalist school.
    He then relocated again, this time to Woodstock, New York at the turn of the century where he founded a school based on his experiments in Tonalism.
    In 1906 Harrison helped found the Art Students League Summer School in Woodstock. He became known especially for his paintings of landscapes in the snow.

    Harrison received numerous prizes and medals, including the gold medal at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1910. He became a member of the National Academy of Design in 1910, National Institute of Arts and Letters, New York Water Color Club, Society of American Artists, and was director of the landscape school of the Art Students League.

    In 1909 Harrison's lectures were published in a book entitled Landscape Painting; the book was cited as "a standard work for students,and was referred to as "a fine commentary on the technique of the craft." According to art historian William H.Gerdts, Harrison was then "the leading writer in America on contemporary landscape painting."Harrisons's writing reveals an interest in the retinal perception of color, and in tonal harmony; he believed that the term Impressionism was descriptive not merely of the recent movement in French painting, but referred to any work done "honestly and sincerely" before nature.Harrison's painting exemplified the lessons he taught, emphasizing the practice of open-air observation rather than technical facility
