Harry Emerson Lewis was born in Hutchinson, Kansas on February 28, 1892. He studied art early in life with his father Edward Henry Lewis (known as Edel in art circles). The younger Lewis attended high school in Grand Rapids, Michigan and furthered his art training at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in 1912-13. After serving as an instructor of camouflage in the Army in World War One, he spent three years studying art in Florence, Milan, Rome, and the Sorbonne in Paris. Returning to the United States, he worked for awhile in the Boston studio of Alexander Robinson before entering the Art Institute of Chicago for further study. He later taught there until his move to southern California in 1924. Lewis lived in Hollywood and in 1931 moved to San Francisco. While active in the San Francisco art world, he maintained a home across the bay in Corte Madera. About 1945 he moved to Laguna Beach, and the last four years of his life were spent in Santa Ana, California, where he died on August 17, 1958. Harry Emerson Lewis is best known for his watercolor landscapes, he also did portraits and commercial illustrations.
