About

Beautiful New England landscape painting by American artist, Harry Leith-Ross (1886-1973). Watercolor on paper, sheet measures 9 x 13 inches; 16.25 x 20.75 inches framed. Signed lower right. Original gallery label and artist studio stamp en verso. Perhaps it was Andrew Wyeth who claimed that every representational painting is an abstract in disguise.. The artist reduces objects to geometries in this New England boatyard to create a disorienting dreamlike space. An elevated figure floats on the horizon line; a cottage seems to drift weightlessly in the bay. Boats sit on dry land. Nothing is where it belongs.
