Robert Harrison

Robert Harrison was born in San Antonio, Texas, and grew up in the Wimberly area. Robert never had any formal art training. He learned initially from his Grandmother and is primarily self-taught. For many years, Harrison showed his work exclusively with Louis Marshall at Marshall's Brocante in San Antonio. He has lived in San Antonio most of his life. His love of the Hill Country is evident in his paintings, and 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. His work has been featured in San Antonio Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, and Art International.
