More About this Item


Description: George Harvey (New York, Massachusetts / England, Canada 1800 - 1878) Landscape painting of Catskills New York. Man fishing near a lake with mountains in the background. Map of where the scene is attached verso. Oil/Canvas. Sight Size: 7.75 x 9.5 in. Overall Size: 12.5 x 14.5 in. In 1828, Harvey submitted two picturesque* English scene paintings and a floral still life to the National Academy of Design* for exhibition. He listed his address as Brooklyn and on the works described the English scenes as "made from a Sketch Taken in 1819;" and the still life as "A Vase of Flowers Copied from Nature." (Dearinger) He was almost immediately elected to the Academy for membership, which indicates that although he was a relative newcomer to New York City, he had already gained widespread respect as a painter. y 1829, Harvey had moved to Boston,but he contributed to the National Academy exhibition of that year, but did not participate again until 1837, when he was living at Hastings-on-Hudson, New York and had a studio in the New York University Building. When settled at Hastings-on-Hudson, he began his "American Scenery" series, for which he remains most known. Completed in 1840 and edited by Washington Irving, the project had forty watercolors that he intended to have engraved* in England and widely circulated by subscriptions. However, the cost was enormous, he could not get necessary funding; and only 250 copies with four views sold. (The New York Historical Society has about 20 of the unpublished watercolors intended for engraving in England. ) This project meant that Harvey spent much time away from the United States in England and diminished people's knowledge of him in America. Harvey Exhibited at National Academy exhibitions of 1840, 1842, 1846 and 1847.
