and his images have influenced a worldwide enthusiasm and
demand for contemporary American art for a generation. Few
artists have intrigued and captivated art collectors as
widely as the celebrated painter, G. Harvey. During his
storied career, G. Harvey has painted turn-of-the-century
America as no other artist. His scenes are warm,
thoughtful portraits of our country’s bustling cities in a
more genteel era and outstanding Western sagas of working
cowhands at home in rugged landscapes.
Gerald Harvey Jones, known to his patrons and peers as G.
Harvey, grew up in the rugged hills in Central Texas where
herds of longhorn cattle were driven along the dusty
trails. This background has been the inspiration for the
artist’s commitment to portraying the spirit of America.
Through his art, our country’s history lives. Harvey
restores all those memories, sights, sounds, and emotions.
With his ability to capture the drama, light, and feeling
of a moment, the artist brings the heart of his painting
to the viewer.
G. Harvey is not only an extraordinary painter, but an
accomplished sculptor. His original works and bronze
sculptures are in the collections of major corporations,
prestigious museums, American presidents, governors,
foreign leaders, and captains of industry. The artist has
been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject
of four books. Harvey has been honored with one-man shows
at the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives
in Washington, D. C.
The artist’s original paintings are represented in major
galleries. His annual, one-man shows are consistent
sell-outs where Harvey collectors come from all around the
country to view and compete to own an outstanding work by
G. Harvey lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with
his wife, Pat, where they enjoy living near their children
and grandchildren. A studio adjacent to his home is a
sanctuary for creating the paintings that his legends of
devoted collectors eagerly anticipate with each new work.
G. Harvey’s work reminds us that the world has changed
very much and very little; country lanes and city streets
are still romantic. It is, after all, from living in the
present that the artist draws inspiration for the past.
