George W. Booz, Jr. was born in the year 1915 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. He is a native of Bucks County, and has spent much of his life in and around the Delaware Valley. George was born with a natural talent for art and design. Although he was a man of many talents, his strongest desire was for painting.
His education included developing his talent for art at the Industrial School of Art in Trenton, New Jersey. Most of his study was spent learning the fundamentals of art, perspective, and composition, plus light and shade. His knowledge of color came naturally to him, and association with many of the early artists in the New Hope area was beneficial as well as instructive.
His style of painting, particularly snowscapes, won him the reputation of being the bridge between the Old New Hope School of Art, and the much sought after art of today.
George??™s love for the Delaware Valley drove him to capture the beauty and the nostalgia of the Valley, its mills, canals, bridges, and old stone farms in the mood and peace of a bygone era. In capturing the mood of his subject, he holds a realism in a somewhat documentary style, leaving one with the feeling of true local history.
George passed in 2004.
