Harold Harvey was one of the few native Cornish painters. He originally studied under Norman Garstin, but also visited Paris as a young man. His earlier work was very much influenced by Stanhope Forbes though it changed as he grew older, his brushwork becoming less thick and his forms more simple. Some of his later work shows a period stylisation, but without the Picasso influences of his contemporaries Ernest and Dod Procter. He was friendly with Alec and Kay Walker who founded Cryséde Silk in Newlyn. He continued to work right up to his death in 1941.
