The October issue of The Magazine Antiques has an article on the atmospheric landscape painter George Harvey. Not usually attracted to the watercolor medium, I was drawn in by a scene of Flatbush from Greenwood cemetary in Brookly and a view of the Pennsylvania Canal at Holidaysburg. The works appear exceptional, and certainly are worthy of appreciation as art, rather than simply for their historical value. The works are on display at the New York Historical Society, however their web site says they have been temporarily removed due to construction delays. In the meantime, pick up a copy of The Magazine Antiques.
