Title: The Paintings of Sam Hyde Harris (1889-1977) - A Retrospective Exhibition

Author(s): Jean Stern

"It is with great pride that Petersen Galleries present a major retrospective exhibition of the paintings of Sam Hyde Harris. Harris was one of the early Los Angeles area artists and many of his paintings show scenes of Los Angeles which no longer exist. Thus we are doubly pleased to present this exhibition in conjunction with the Bicentennial Celebration of the City of Los Angeles." "Our collection of Harris paintings, which consists of 70 works all painted prior to 1945, was obtained from the estate of the artist." Robert E. Petersen
