Harris Residence

Little is known of this Cape Breton home. The front parlour features a painted ceiling (c. 1900). The artist is unknown but judging by the close similarities between the painted ceiling in this home and that of the Lomas-Anderson residence in Sherbrooke, NS one would assume that the artwork may have been completed by one of Ozia Leduc's assistants, Raoul Ducharme, Dollard Church, L.P. Marin or J.P. Allaire. Below: Photographs provided by Bonnie Elliott, Curator, Randall House Museum, Wolfville, NS (1982). To date the painted ceiling has been covered with dry wall (2009). The owners could not afford to preserve the painted surfaces so they opted to cover the artwork in order to shield it from further damage.
