Harry Leslie Hoffman
Undersea Fantasy, Nassau
Oil on canvas, signed lower center
42 by 56 inches
Painted during the
winter of 1916 when Harry Hoffman traveled to Nassau, this large
painting is one of the artists most important works.
During this trip, a new world opened up for Hoffman as he viewed
the coral reefs with a water-glass and later a glass bottom boat.
In vivid colors, he painted images of the beauty and spirit
of the undersea environment.
