Biography from Arthur J. Nichols Fine Art
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.
