Tintern Abbey was a popular subject for Henry Harris and this one is a very good example with nice attention to detail. You can read the name of the pub "Anchor Inn" - run as a pub since 1806. This is a very atmospheric painting of the wonderful ruins on the banks of the River Wye in Monmouthshire.
Henry is very well known as a Bristol artist and many of his works are either in or near this locality, but he painted all over the UK.
It is in excellent condition, apart from a single small repair, framed in a vintage (somewhat distressed) frame.
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

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. 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,
