Leith-Ross became renowned for his vibrant, carefully composed oil paintings, and for his transparent watercolor technique in the tradition of the eighteenth-century. He gained recognition for depicting humble genre scenes of rural life and finding beauty in the everyday activities of people. In Harry Leith-Ross: Scenes from Country Life, intimate drawings (some with notes in the artist’s own hand) from the Michener’s collection provide a distinctive view into the artistic process and private thoughts of one of the most important American artists of the first half of the 20th century.
