Eli Harvey American, 1860-1957


Raised on a farm in a devout Quaker community, Harvey familiarized himself with the animal kingdom at a young age. He studied at the Cincinnati Art Academy and traveled on to Paris, spending twelve years painting and sculpting animals. Figurative by default, he was against abstraction and believed that sculpture should express the beauty of nature as God intended. Most famously, Harvey rendered an eight-foot-tall sculpture of a bear that was adopted as the mascot of Brown University.
