Biography   George Barker


Born in Omaha, Nebraska, George Barker was a portrait and landscape painter who studied with J Laurie Wallace and Edwin Scott before going to Grande Chaumiere in Paris where he was the pupil of Andre Lhote.

From 1911-1921, he taught art in Omaha and then moved to Long Beach, California and taught at Long Beach Polytechnic High School until 1929. He was active in the Santa Monica Art Association. A man of independent means, he lectured on wide-ranging subjects that included French Painting, Thomas Eakins, and Velasquez. He was married to Olive Barker, also an artist and with her traveled and painted, beginning in the 1930s, to Arizona and New Mexico.

From 1929 to 1965, he lived with his wife in a home in Pacific Palisades.
