Louis Kinney Harlow — painter and etcher — known for New England landscapes, fishermen, farms, boats, and coastal scenes--was born on March 28, 1850 in Wareham, MA and died in 1913. After attending school at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, Harlow went into business and married Julia Coombs. They started their family and eventually had three children.

Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers lists him as a watercolor artist and etcher, but his auction records also show a list of oils, pastels, gouache, and mixed media. Although not listed as an illustrator, Harlow did brightly colored paintings that were highly desired by publishers of fine art books. Prang & Company and C. Klacker & Company reproduced his watercolors.

Harlow started his career as a professional artist in 1880 and exhibited with the Boston Art Club in 1883, 1885, 1887, and 1894. During the early 1880s he was teaching in Detroit but moved back to Boston in the mid-1880s. In 1885 Harlow's address is listed as 196 Central Street, Somerville, MA; in 1887, 6 Beacon Street, Boston, MA; and in 1894, Waban, MA. Sometime before the 1890s, he went to England, Paris, and Holland to study the work of the masters.

Harlow's work is represented in the collections of the Strong Museum in Rochester, NY and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, Alberta.
