Further Reading
  • Harper exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1865 – 1888, almost entirely views in Wales and the north of England and from 1873 views in Palestine and Egypt. He was a committee member of the Palestine Exploration Fund and published several books on the Holy Land. Sir Richard Wallace's acquisition of two watercolours by Harper (see also 'Jerusalem: the Wailing Wall', P694) may be due to some personal acquaintance with the artist.
