Artist Biography

George Overbury "Pop" Hart, Painter, etcher, born in Cairo, IL, May 10, 1868. Hart grew up in a household in which several of his older siblings were artists. This association created in Hart an early love for art. Early in his career, he was a sign painter for amusement parks in New York City. Although many writers have perpetuated the myth that Pop Hart was a self-taught artist, he was quite the contrary. In fact Hart had more training than some of the better known artists of his time. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago for three years from 1894-1897 and briefly at the Academie Julian in Paris in 1907. He was a member of the American Watercolor Society; New York Watercolor Club; Brooklyn Society of Etchers; Salons of America; Society of Independent Artists and others. He won various awards including Etching prize, Brooklyn Society of Etchers, 1923-1924; first prize, watercolor, Palisade Art Association, Englewood, NJ, 1924; bronze medal, Sesquicentennial Exposition, Philadelphia, 1926 and others. His work can also be found in major museums in the United States and abroad. A bust of him by Reuben Nakian is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City donated as a gift compliments of Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr. He died in New York City in 1933.
