Harry Aiken Vincent
Known for his bold Impressionist harbor scenes, Harry Aiken Vincent was a prominent member of the Rockport Art Colony in the beginning of the twentieth century. Born in Chicago, Vincent moved to Rockport, Massachusetts in 1918, devoting himself to studying the ocean around Cape Ann. He became the first president of the Rockport Art Association in 1921 and served as a charter member of the North Shore Art Association. His vivid marine paintings won several prizes from the Salmagundi Club and the New York Watercolor Club and were featured in exhibitions at the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Today, Vincent’s work is in such prominent collections as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Butler Institute of American Art.
