Biography from Rehs Galleries, Inc.:
George W. Drew was born 21 December 1875 in Massachusetts.  He was a member of the Independent Artists Association.  He exhibited at the National Academy of Design and they have him recorded as living at 745 Columbus Ave., N.Y. in the year 1898.  He also exhibited at the Allied Artists of America, which was established in 1914, Salons of America, N.Y. State Fair, Newark State Fair, Newark Museum and New York Museum of Science & Industry.

Although there is little known about the personal life of George W. Drew, his paintings appear on the art market quite often.  It is obvious that his work has always been well received because of the numerous exhibitions he has participated in.  He is known for his rustic luminous depictions of the Nineteenth Century American Landscape.  Like many of the Hudson River Painters, Drew captures the effects of light from within the canvas.  He is a master of perspective; his landscapes are classically and harmoniously balanced, leaving the viewer to gently rest their eyes on the rustic countryside.

Biography from Arthur J. Nichols Fine Art:
Landscape painter born in New York 1875, died 1968.  He studied with John Califano and Henry Pember Smith.  He exhibited at; The National Academy of Design in 1898. Member of The Allied Arts of America, Salons of America, Society of Independent Artists. Exhibitor at The N.Y. State Fair, Newark Museum, New York Museum of Science and Industry. A Mural of Drew's work can be seen at Travers Island Yacht House in Mount Vernon New York.  He traveled with Pember Smith and painted in Connecticut, New England, and Italy.  Many of his works are so similar to that of Pember Smith the two are often confused.
