Harrison Fisher Gallery

Harrison Fisher (1875 - 1934) was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was the third generation in a line of artists beginning with his grandfather Felix Xiver Fisher. Harrison's father Hugo Antone Fisher taught Harrison the art of drawing and painting. After his mother's death, his father moved the family to the West Coast, and Harrison soon enrolled in the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art, formerly the San Francisco Art Association. The family later opened an art studio, but Harrison tended towards pen and ink sketches and drawings and he soon worked for magazines and publications. He is best known for his illustrations of Victorian and Edwardian women, which rivaled that of Charles Dana Gibson. His work appeared on the covers of the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan and several humor magazines. Click on the following thumbnails to view Harrison Fisher's works.
