{{subst:Quick infobox|George Harley|1791|1871|}} George Harley (born 1791 died 1871), water-colour painter and drawing- master, born in 1791, appears as an exhibitor at the Royal Academy in 1817, when he sent two drawings of views in London. He had a large practice as a drawing-master, and drew in lithography some landscape drawings, as 'Lessons in Landscape', for Messrs. Rowney & Forster's series of lithographic drawing-books, published in 1820-2. In 1848 he published a small 'Guide to Pencil and Chalk Drawing from Landscape', dedicated to his past and present pupils, which reached a second edition. Harley died in 1871, aged 80. There are two water-colour drawings by him in the print room at the British Museum, one being a view of Maxstoke Priory, Warwickshire. A view of Fulham Church and Putney Bridge is in the South Kensington Museum. [DNB 1][DNB 2][1]
