"Texas Bluebonnet"

  • Biography

    Robert Harrison (Born 1949)

    Robert Harrison was born in San Antonio Texas and spent many summers as a
    child in Wimberley, Texas with his grandmother, Myrtle Lowery Harrison, who
    introduced Robert to painting and encouraged his interest in it.

    Over his career which spans nearly half a century, Harrison's work has
    sold in fine art galleries in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and as far
    away as Carmel California. Robert's love of the Texas hill country is
    evident in his paintings and he is considered by many art authorities to
    be the best living landscape artist in Texas. Cecelia Steinfeldt,
    curator emeritus of the Witte Museum, listed him as one of the top ten
    bluebonnet painters of all time in an article in Southwest Art Magazine,
    April 1985.

    Harrison is best known for his bluebonnet scenes, but he masterfully
    captures the beauty of Texas' rivers, Spanish missions and  ranching
    heritage. His work has been featured in San Antonio Magazine, Southwest
    Art Magazine, and Art International. Robert's work is sought after by
    private collectors and corporate collections in the United States and
    internationally.
