Biography

American painter Pop Hart was a self-taught artist except for brief periods at the Art Institute of Chicago and Académie Julian in Paris. His strong desire to travel around the world, led him to Mexico, Central America, North Africa, the Caribbean, and the South Pacific, especially Tahiti, less than two months after Paul Gauguin died. As early as 18, he sailed on to a cattle boat to London, and while there began his practice as an itinerant sign painter to earn his living while traveling. His manner of using watercolor was revolutionary for its time in its loose and free application. His painting used a wide range of subjects including animals, botanical studies, nudes, and landscapes. In the 1920s he also began printmaking, working in drypoint, lithographs, and etching.
