This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information, submitted February 2005, is from Chester Baird, who wrote: "It is what I remember Mr. Shaw telling me about himself when I visited him in the late 1960's & 1970's.  My mother had retired to Sarasota and my wife and I ran across some of his work that was being exhibited in Sarasota. We subsequently bought a number of his paintings, and every time we visited my mother dropped in on him and his wife, Margo, who had a home on Long Boat Key.  Margo was a sculptress.

Mr. Shaw went to school at Ohio State and Michigan. What degrees he received at either I don't remember.  I seem to remember he attended Ohio State and graduated from Michigan.  That would have been in the 1930's.  He also taught at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (Lafayette, La) for a number of years until he retired.

He was a part of the same artist group in eastern Pennsylvania (Brandywine?) that N. C. Wyeth was a part of. He and his wife traveled in New Mexico, Arizona, Central America and North Carolina, scenes of which he later painted.  I remember him showing me some of his work of Arizona scenes that were published by the Ford Motor Company in a small 'touring" book they had done on that region.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Harry Shaw became a painter, illustrator, art educator, drawing specialist and block printer. During his career, he lived in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Louisiana and Florida.

In Florida, he was a teacher at Miami University, and the Art Museum School of Clearwater. From 1942 to 1959, he was Associate Professor of Art at the University of Southwestern Louisiana.

He preferred to paint with oil, watercolor and acrylics and illustrated a book of block prints, titled "Quest".

Biography from William R Talbot Fine Art:
Originally working as a muralist, Harry Shaw enjoyed printmaking as well as painting. He published a bound collection of sixteen large linoleum block prints titled Quest, with eight scenes of "Coal Country" and eight scenes of "Pueblo Land." Issued in 1934, the book may have been a project for the WPA. A limited edition of 300 copies was produced by the artist, seven volumes of which are currently listed online in libraries, including the Library of Congress.

While he was never a long-term resident of New Mexico, it is clear from the subject matter of many of his artworks that Harry Shaw often visited the Southwest. One oral account has it that a number of his Arizona scenes were published by the Ford Motor Company in a small touring book. He is known to have painted scenes of Taos, New Mexico.

Shaw was born in Philadelphia. He attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Cleveland School of Art, and Ohio University, where earned his master's degree. He went on to establish the art department at Ball State University in Indiana, then returned to Ohio to teach at Miami University. In 1934, he published Quest, in Akron, Ohio.

Beginning around 1939, he was Associate Professor of Art at the Southwestern Louisiana Institute of Liberal and Technical Learning (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette) for abut 20 years, except for a period serving in the military. During World War II, Shaw's wife, the sculptor Margo Allen, assumed his teaching responsibilities at the Institute.

After Louisiana, Shaw and Allen moved to Long Boat Key in Florida where he continued to give classes at Bradenton Art Center and the Art League of Manatee County School. In the 1960s, the couple went abroad and exhibited in Paris and Mexico City. By 1975, they were living in Sarasota.

Harry Shaw's artworks are held in the collections of the Akron Art Museum, the Canton Museum of Art, and the Library of Congress.
