Harry Leith-Ross (1886-1973) was an influential teacher and author as well as one of the most decorated and prolific Pennsylvania Impressionist artists. For more than 30 years he regularly exhibited his watercolors, drawings, and oil paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery, the National Academy of Design, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This beautifully illustrated book chronicles Harry Leith-Rossí life from his birth on the island of Mauritius, to his childhood growing up in his grandparents' castle in Scotland, to his early years traveling in America, and his final residence in Bucks County. This is the definitive publication covering the artistís life and work and is the sixth volume in the acclaimed series of books on Pennsylvania Impressionist artists produced by the expert curators of the Michener Art Museum.
