Title

Hidden Moon

Description

Birge Harrison was one of the first dignitaries from the American art Establishment who recognized rich and latent artistic potential available in the Southern landscape. Harrison had studied and lived abroad, painting and publishing articles on the important artistic subjects of his time. By 1906, he had become the director of the Art Students League’s summer colony at Woodstock, New York. This Tonalist painting is one of four seascapes Harrison is known to have created in Charleston, South Carolina, while visiting the city in 1908. Harrison’s relationship with his student Alfred Hutty is often cited as a critical factor in initiating that period of Southern artistic renewal later known as the Charleston Renaissance.
