""

George Hitchcock (1850-1913) was an American painter. Born in Providence, Rhode Island to a well-off family, Hitchcock originally intended to become a lawyer. He studied at Brown University before attending Harvard Law School. Still, after a short amount of time practicing law, he decided to pursue art. He opened a studio in Chicago and started painting watercolors but soon decided to pursue/obtain a formal art education. In 1879, he began studying at Heatherly’s School of Fine Art in London. In 1882, he enrolled at the Académie Julian in Paris. After completing his studies in 1884, he settled in Egmond-aan-Zee in the Netherlands, where he would open a studio and live for the rest of his life. He became known for his paintings of humble, rustic life, showing his work throughout the United States and Europe. On a quick visit to the United States in 1905, he exhibited in New York, Providence, and Detroit. He passed away in 1913, while living in a houseboat near the North Coast of the Netherlands.
