Thomas Alexander Harrison (January 17, 1853, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – October 13, 1930), was an American marine painter who spent much of his career in France.
He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, then joined a United States government survey expedition on the Pacific coast. Beginning in 1878, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Jean-Leon Gerome and Jules Bastien-Lepage.
Chafing under the restraints of the schools, he traveled to Brittany, where at Pont-Aven and Concarneau he turned his attention to marine painting and landscape.
