Guy Harvey’s Old Man and the Sea

Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea” has also captured the imagination of marine-scientist-turned-wildlife-artist Guy Harvey. (Dr. Harvey received a doctoral degree in marine biology from the University of the West Indies; here is a brief bio of his life and work.) For his first art exhibition, held in Jamaica in 1985, Dr. Harvey created a series of 44 original pen and ink drawings of Hemingway’s story, including the illustration pictured below. Based on the positive reviews he received at his first art show, Dr. Harvey decided to devote himself to painting full time. Later, in 2001, he published Santiago’s Finest Hour (available here via Amazon), a compilation of 59 pen and ink drawings of the Cuban fisherman’s heroic ordeal as recounted in Hemingway’s novella. (You can see more of Dr. Harvey’s original set of “old man and the sea” paintings here.)
