G. Harvey Cowboys “Crossong the Texas Plains” Early Painting 1968


G. Harvey (Gerald Harvey Jones) (1933-2017) “Crossing The Texas Plains” Everything you could want in a G. Harvey painting! This western painting depicts a crossing of cowboys riding horses alongside wagons kicking up dust among the cactus and grasses on the plains of Texas. Titled on verso “Crossing The Texas Plains” and numbered “#3475” which has been verified with th G. Harvey Family catalogue of all known paintings. Canvas: 20 X 24 Inches Framed: 25 X 29 Inches Condition: Excellent G. Harvey was born in Texas in November 1933. He studied the day to day life of cowboys and shares an authentic portrayal of them through his paintings. From the dramatic moments on a round-up to the quiet times in the evening, G. Harvey shares a glimpse inside the life of the cowboy through his art. 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 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 graduation 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 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 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 has been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of three books. Through his art, our history lives.
