Selected works by George Wainwright Harvey

George Wainwright Harvey

1855 - 1930

George Wainwright Harvey was one of Cape Ann's most skilled native artists. Born in East Gloucester, he studied with Philadelphia artist W. H. Weisman who taught on Cape Ann during the mid-1870s. Harvey also traveled to Europe to study, but unlike many other artists who chose Paris, Harvey went to Holland where he was influenced by the Dutch version of Impressionism. In addition to working in watercolor, George Harvey was also an accomplished etcher. He and his wife Martha Hale Harvey (who was a superb photographer) lived on River Road in Annisquam for many years.
