This biography from the Archives of AskART:
George Harding was the younger brother of Charlotte Harding, and it was because of her influence that he became interested in illustration. With her assistance, he was admitted to Howard Pyles illustration classes in Wilmington. He later spent several months studying and sketching the life of Newfoundland fishing families. With this background, he returned home to find a market for his work with The Saturday Evening Post and other major magazines.

He was one of eight official artists sent overseas with the A.E.F. during World War I, with roving assignments to document the war in drawings and paintings. In his drawings, he was concerned more with the effect of war on the men themselves than with portraying panoramic scenes of battlefields or ruins. These are now part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

A world traveler, Harding was sent with writer Norman Duncan on a trip through the Middle East, Southwest Asia, Australia, and China to do a series of illustrated stories about their travels.

He subsequently taught illustration at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where one of his students was Edward Shenton (1895-1977).

Harding exhibited widely and painted many murals.

(Information on the biography above is based on writings from the book, "The Illustrator in America, 1880-1980", A Century of Illustration, by Walt and Roger Reed.)
