(1850 - 1913)
Louis Kinney Harlow, painter and etcher, was known for his New England landscapes, fishermen, farms, boats, and coastal scenes.
He was born on March 28, 1850 in Wareham, MA. After attending school at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, Harlow went into
business and married Julia Coombs. They started their family and eventually had three children.
Harlow started his career as a professional artist in 1880 and exhibited with the Boston Art Club in 1883, 1885, 1887, and 1894.
During the early 1880s he was teaching in Detroit but moved back to Boston in the mid-1880s. Sometime before the 1890s, he
went to England, Paris, and Holland to study the work of the masters. Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors &
Engravers lists him as a watercolor artist and etcher, but his auction records also show a list of oils, pastels, gouache, and mixed
Harlow's work is represented in the collections of the Strong Museum in Rochester, NY and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian
Rockies in Banff, Alberta. References: Who Was Who in American Art, 1999, page 1461; Davenport's Art Reference,
