Harry Aiken Vincent
Date: 1867–1931
Remarks: Artist H. A. Vincent was a well-known marine and landscape painter. A self-taught artist, he was born in Chicago and moved to New York City, where he probably trained. He spent many years exploring and painting coastal Massachusetts, particularly Cape Cod and Cape Ann. After relocating to Cape Ann, he became known for his stirring, impressionist depictions of the shoreline towns of Rockport and Gloucester, Massachusetts, and was an organizer of the Rockport and North Shore Art Associations. Vincent’s work was exhibited in the United States and Europe, including at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, National Academy of Design (where he became an associate in 1920), and the Salmagundi Club.
