Although born in England, painter Sam Hyde Harris was a true Southern Californian, a California impressionist and one of the leaders of the plein air movement of the first half of the 20th century. Perhaps best known for his paintings of Chavez Ravine, Harris was an Alhambra resident who taught at Chouinard and world as an illustrator for the Santa Fe Railroad.
