and London, and after working in commercial art for a time in Chicago, George moved to California with William Wendt, and they built a studio south of Laguna Beach.
George was strictly a plein air painter. Frequently, he would make treks to the Arizona desert and the Grand Canyon, but he is best known for snowy scenes of New England.
It's amazing that in an age long before frequent flyer miles, he maintained bi-coastal existence, with studios in California, New York City and in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. His work resides in the Art Institute of Chicago, the Smithsonian, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and many other museums.
