R.G. Harris






He was born Sept. 9, 1911, in Kansas City, Mo. While still attending high school, he was preparing for a career in art by attending night and summer school at the Kansas City Art Institute, studying illustration under the noted Monte Crews. He also studied at the Grand Central Art School in New York under illustrator Harvey Dunn and at the Art Students League under George Bridgman, anatomist
He set up his own art studio in New Rochelle, N.Y., in 1933. Artistic success soon followed with his colorful paintings of Western story covers for the pulp magazines flourishing at the time
In 1935, he married Marjorie Elenora King, also a student at the Kansas City Art Institute. With her help and encouragement, painting story illustrations for the leading women’s magazines began in 1939 and continued for the next 30 years. His art was seen on a regular basis in the Saturday Evening Post, McCalls, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Cosmopolitan and Ladies Home Journal. These were interspersed with illustrations for national advertising accounts — Coca-Cola, Cannon Sheets, etc
In 1953, he moved his family to Scottsdale, Ariz., and continued in the field of illustration until 1961. At that time he was also painting portraits. He was honored in 1962 with a one-man show of portraits at the Phoenix Art Museum
In 1970, a new home and studio was built in Carefree, Ariz., where he continued in portraiture until he retired in 1989
His oil portraits hang in the Department of Justice, Washington, D.C., and in many private collections in the United States
