G. Harvey Biography

Artist 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 at 18, and helped create an American legend. So the American West was 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; but 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 where 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 governor of Mexico's four northern states.

Harvey painted 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 chose Harvey to paint "The Smithsonian Dream" commemorating its 150th Anniversary. The Christmas Pageant of Peace commissioned Harvey to create a painting celebrating this national event. He was the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of three books. Through his art, our history lives.

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

Gerald Harvey Jones, known professionally as G. Harvey, died on November 13, 2017 at the age of 84.
