In the late 1880s Harrison began producing what would become his signature marine scenes. The Wave is a smaller study for a larger work of the same title, and is completely characteristic of the horizontal compositions of the shorelines that he favored. With gentle realism, it shows the wave patterns around the rock formations close to shore; it captures the calm emptiness of the un-trafficked ocean. His eye for varying subtle and vibrant coloration is evident. This is an excellent example of his prized painting style, with its original frame to enhance the experience and value.
