Harrison Fisher Wall Art

Harrison Fisher (Born 1875 – Died 1934) made a name for himself in the American history of illustration due to his strange ability to paint beautiful women. At one time, his painting, ‘Fisher Girl’ was also known as ‘The Gibson Girl.’ He was born in Brooklyn, to Xavier Felix Fisher. His father and his grandfather were both artists and they were immigrants from Bohemia. The family moved to Alameda, California (near San Francisco) having left New York in 1886. Two years later (in 1888), his mother died. And five years later, his art was exhibited at the Columbia Exposition in Chicago. His art fared so well and he felt comfortable and confident enough to open a studio in San Francisco on Battery Street. His father had already started to teach him and his brother to paint and sketch as soon as they arrived in California.

In fact, he took them on camping trips around the Pacific coastline and in many other places to sketch the magnificent sceneries. Fisher had shown passion and promise quite early and he excelled at drawing from the age of 6. Coupled with his natural talent and his father’s training, he joined the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art while still young, and as a teenager, he sold illustrations to local newspapers. Soon, his works were being published by a popular national magazine Judge; those commissions that he got early in his career brought him to the notice of the San Francisco Call, and eventually, Fisher was hired as a staff artist.
