This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Harry Lewis Hickman was born in Arnold, Pennsylvania, Westmoreland County, on March 4, 1912.  He was the son of well-known painter Harry L. Hickman, Sr. who taught painting at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.  Painting for Hickman was a lifelong avocation, although, he was also quite the entrepreneur having founded in 1935 the Hickman Lumber Company, which still exists today.
 
Among his early art teachers were A.H. Gorson, a Pittsburgh master of mills, and Christian Walter, another Pittsburgh artist whose influence can be seen in his landscapes.  He also attended workshops in Colorado, Arizona, Arkansas, the Adirondacks, and in the Canan Valley of West Virginia.

Hickman was known primarily for his oils and watercolors. He was fond of landscapes and scenes native to the sea. For many years he traveled to Rockport, Massachusetts in the month of May to paint the ocean.

From 1945 to 1947, Hickman conducted a summer school of painting in Emlenton, Pennsylvania.  After that, he established an art colony at his farmhouse in Kennerdell for business men, housewives, and young art students who spent their leisure time learning to find subjects, arrange composition and paint on canvas.  His unique method of instruction eliminated tedious procedures, teaching art directly by drawing and demonstration.
 
Hickman had numerous one-man shows and had exhibited in many art shows, winning numerous prizes and awards.  For a time he worked for the Quaker State Oil Corporation, painting signs for them and traveled extensively for them.

He was a member of the Rockport Art Association, the Bi-County Artists of Clarion, the Art Guild on Sharon, the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, the Butler Associated Artists, and the Vendango Museum of Art, Science, and Industry in Oil City, Pennsylvania.  He was also a fellow of the prestigious Royal Society of Artists in London, England.  He was also the art director of the Kennerdell Music and Art Festival starting in 1964 to his death.
 
Harry Lewis Hickman died January 4, 1997 at the Northwest Medical Center in Franklin. Pennsylvania.
