This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Somerset, Iowa, George Harvey became a portrait and landscape painter. He studied in Boston with his uncle George Harvey (1800-1878) and with Thomas Hicks in New York City. However, his art studies were interrupted by the Civil War.

After the War, he returned to live with his family in Burlington, Iowa where he remained the rest of his life. He worked as a printer and painted scenes along the Mississippi River. His most noted work was an enormous view of Burlington, commissioned by a group of private citizens and exhibited in the Iowa Building of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

Harvey also painted portraits including three governors of Missouri. His death date is unknown, but he lived a long life as he is documented as being in Burlington in 1920.
