Description

Detailed scene of a Ghillie in traditional Scottish attire, sitting beside the banks of a river or loch with a ruined castle and more figures. His pony stands beside him with a wicker basket hung from the saddle. On the reverse there is an inscription that I think says Achray Castle, but that may be a later addition. It is a lovely Highland scene at the turn of the 19 th Century
It is in excellent condition, in it's original Victorian frame and signed lower left.
This painting is part of a single owner collection of some of his finest paintings which have been very well cared for over the last 50 years or so and are now ready to be displayed again in a new setting

Biography
Henry Clarence Harris (1852-1926) was born in Cullompton, Devon in 1852. His father William Harris was a Miller and had a large family, 15 sons in all. In 1862 the family moved to Bristol. After starting his artistic career as a self-employed painter and interior decorator, Henry took up painting as a full-time occupation in 1875. He married Barbara Ellen Sweet on February 1st 1872 at St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol. They lived in St. Mark's, Easton from around 1880 and had 8 children there. He worked both in oil and watercolour and specialised in landscape and river scenes, very often including cattle and bridges. He loved to sketch around his home in Stapleton, Bristol, particularly Snuff Mills, but he travelled all over Great Britain, through Wales and Scotland. His paintings were sold usually directly to clients, not through a gallery and he was regularly commissioned to paint. He died on April 23rd 1926, aged 74.
