Harold Harvey Paintings Up to 1910
Harold Harvey was born on 20 May 1874 in North Parade, Penzance, Cornwall, the eldest of eight children. His father was a bank clerk. Harvey trained in painting at the Penzance Art School under Norman Garstin, and attended the Academie Julian in Paris between 1894 and 1896. Initially his style was impressionistic and his works mostly depicted scenes of the local fishing and agricultural communities, such as ‘In the Whiting Ground’ (c1900, now in Penlee House at Penzance). His work matured from about 1905 with brighter colours, and simpler compositions. He exhibited at the Newlyn Gallery and major provincial galleries.
