Biography from the Archives of askART
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Harry Vincent was a vital part of the
Rockport, Massachusetts art colony, serving as its first President and
making it his home. He was self-taught with a
penchant for bold
impressionistic marine and waterfront scenes, showing special interest
in themes of the commonplace in the working harbor---unloading fish,
drying sails, etc.

little is known about his early life, and there is uncertainty about
whether his birth date is 1862, 1864 or 1867, but most sources cite

artists are found in that type of entry information.
well-received in exhibitions at New York's National Academy and the
Salmagundi Club in the early 1900s, with most of them being marine
paintings. In 1918, he first went to Rockport, where he lived on
the edge of Inner Harbor, the perfect spot to become familiar with Cape
Ann fishermen. They often took him out to sea where he could
study the ocean closely.
