About The Artist G. Harvey

G.Harvey grew up in the rugged hills north of San Antonio, Texas from where herds of longhorn cattle were once driven up dusty trails to the Kansas railheads. His grandfather was a trail boss, and helped create an American legend. So the American West is not only the artist's inspiration but his birthright.

Harvey's early interest in sketching and drawing slowly evolved into a passion for painting in oils. After graduating cum laude from North Texas State University, Harvey took a position with the University of Texas in Austin. He soon realized that weekends and nights at the easel did not satisfy his love of painting. He abandoned the security of a full-time job in 1963 and threw his total energy into a fine art career.

Two years as a "struggling artist" followed, but 1965 brought acclaim for the artist's first prestigious show, The Grand National exhibition in New York, and the American Artists' Professional League presented him with their New Master's Award. President Lyndon Johnson discovered his fellow Texan's talent, became a Harvey collector and introduced John Connally to the artist's work. Connally was enthusiastic about Harvey's art and on one occasion, he presented a G. Harvey original to each of the governors of Mexico's four northern states. Harvey paints the spirit of America from its western hills and prairies to the commerce of its great cities. His original paintings and bronze sculptures are in the collections of major corporations, prestigious museums, the United States government, American presidents, governors, foreign leaders and captains of industry. The Smithsonian Institution honored Harvey by selecting him for a one-man show. Four Harvey Civil War paintings were unveiled for Washington dignitaries in the rotunda of the National Archives alongside the historic documents of our nation. He has been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of three books. Through his art, our history lives.

Today, G. Harvey lives in Fredericksburg. Texas, with his wife Pat in a 150-year old stone home built by German settlers. His studio and residence are nestled within the Historic District of Fredericksburg.

With the eruption of Spindletop on January 10, 1901, the face of Texas was forever changed. Land where cattle once roamed freely gave way to wildcatters and oil derricks. This new industry dramatically changed the lives of Texas cowhands. Some stayed on and enjoyed the new era of Black Gold. Others chose to move away rather than submit to this different kind of lease.
