G. Harvey (1933-2017), "Counting Calves", 1971, oil on canvas, 25 x 31", frame: 33.25 x 39.25"
G. Harvey grew up in San Antonio, Texas. Lyndon Johnson introduced his works to John Connally who presented a G. Harvey original to the governors of four Northern Mexican states. He celebrated a one-man show at the Smithsonian Institution entitled "The All American Horse". Harvey has always believed that history lives through art including the epic struggle between the states, the western migration, the brief time when horses and automobiles clattered across cobblestones together. He is faithfully able to capture the drama and feeling of such a moment in time. G. Harvey died in Austin, November 2017.
