Harold HARVEY (1874-1941) ✿

Harold Harvey (1874-1941) was a Newlyn School English painter who painted scenes of working class Cornish fishermen, farmers and miners and Cornish landscapes. He was born in Penzance and trained at the Penzance School of Arts under Norman Garstin and later at the Académie Julian, in Paris. He settled in Newlyn with fellow-artist Gertrude Bodinnar.
His early genre paintings of rustic and marine life gradually gave way to more sophisticated subject matter - he was noted for his sumptuous interiors and more decorative style of painting.
After completing his schooling in Paris, Harvey returned to Penzance and began working with Norman Garstin. His works included landscapes and life settings of his native Cornwall, religious themes and interiors. He used oil and watercolour paints.
From 1909 to 1913, he was an Associate of the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, Conwy and, in 1910, he was a member of the South Wales Art Society. From about 1910 and into the early 1930s, he was a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists, particularly with artists from the Lamorna valley.
In 1920, Harvey and his best friend Ernest Procter established the Harvey-Procter School in Newlyn, Cornwall.
