Born into an artistic family in New York, Harvey Johnson fell in love with the West while studying with Harold Von Schmidt. Taking something of the style of his mentor as well as aspects of the realistic approach of John Clymer, Johnson favored works with numbers of figures, especially mountain men, trappers, and Indians, and was a stickler for accuracy. A charter member of the Cowboy Artists of America, Johnson eventually settled in Santa Fe.
