George Hartley wanted to be an artist from his earliest years.Childhood memories recall copying the Sunday comics, gazing for hours at his mother's Maxfield Parrish prints on the walls, Norman Rockwell's Sat. Evening Post covers, and N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for the Scribner Classics.

He used to go to the Boston Public Library to admire the Edwin Austin Abbey murals of King Arthur.

After a stint in the navy, then years of construction and logging, George decided to fulfill his life-long dream, and joined the atelier of Paul Ingbretson. Over the next five years Paul introduced him to the masters of the past and their methods.

George also attended occasional classes with Numael Pulido who taught Renaissance methods.

George is a member of the Copley Society of Boston, and holds the title of Copley Artist. He is enrolled in their portrait gallery. He also belongs to the Southern Vermont Art Center, where he has had solo exhibits.

George has been commissioned for numerous portraits. A number of his still-lifes and copies of the Old Masters hang in private collections.

George has exhibited at:
The Copley Society
Southern Vermont Art Center
Duxbury Art Museum
Plymouth Artist's Guild
Taunton Art Association
Middleboro Art association
Dickinson Art Gallery
Plympton Collection
Harvard Club

George is presently associated with New England Fine Art
