  • Description
    Sam Hyde Harris was born in Brentford, Middlesex, England on Feb. 2, 1889. Harris immigrated to Los Angeles in 1904. As a teenager he attended classes at the Art Students League and Cannon Art School under Hanson Puthuff, Will Foster, Lawrence Murphy, F. Tolles Chamberlin, and Stanton MacDonald-Wright.

    Sam Hyde Harris worked in commercial art throughout his career and taught at the Ebell Club, Businessmen's Art Institute, and Chouinard Art School for many years. In 1950 Harris bought Jack Wilkinson Smith's old studio in Alhambra and lived there for the rest of his life. The harbor at San Pedro was one of his favorite painting spots. His early paintings (1920-1940) show the influence of his teacher and sketching partner Hanson Puthuff and are bathed in light and atmospheric effects. His late paintings are mostly desert scenes done on sketching trips with Jimmie Swinnerton and are bolder, with a palette of reds, yellows, and greens. Sam Hyde Harris won over 100 awards in southern California exhibitions from 1936 until his death in Alhambra on May 30, 1977.
