Robert Harrison was born in San Antonio, Texas, and grew up in the Wimberly area. He has lived in San Antonio most of his life. His love of the Hill Country is evident in his paintings. He is considered by many art authorities to be the best living landscape artist in Texas. Cecilia Steinfeld, curator emeritus of the Witte Museum, listed him as one of the Top Ten bluebonnet painters of all time in an article in Southwest Art Magazine, April 1985. Harrison is best known for his bluebonnet scenes, but he also paints Texas landscapes of other seasons and areas of Texas other than the Hill Country. He has recently started painting the Texas missions again and has been commissioned by some of the most prominent families in the U.S. and Mexico to do paintings of favorite places on their ranches. One prominent family from Mexico commissioned paintings of the seven Texas Missions plus other larger paintings for their homes and ranches in Texas and Mexico. Harrison has paintings displayed throughout North America, such as the Presidential Palace in Mexico, mayor’s offices, board rooms of major corporations, museums, and the homes of private collectors including entertainers such as Reba McEntire. The City of San Antonio presented the former Shah of Iran with a bluebonnet landscape. The President of UTSA, Dr. Ricardo Romo, currently has two bluebonnet paintings in his offices. The Buckhorn Saloon in San Antonio features a large painting of Mission San Jose and a large bluebonnet Hill Country scene by Harrison. In 1992, one of his paintings was selected to be used by then President George Bush Sr. as a backdrop for a Drug Summit with the presidents of Peru, Columbia, Bolivia and Equador. His work has been featured in “San Antonio Magazine,” “Southwest Art Magazine,” and “Art International.” Robert never had any formal art training. He learned initially from his Grandmother and is primarily self-taught. He is the great, great grandson of Greenberry Ezelle, one of the main characters of the “Lost San Saba Mines” written about by J. Frank Dobie in the book Coronado’s Children.
