George Herbert Baker

George Herbert Baker (February 14, 1878 – March 11, 1943) was an American Impressionist performer who worked primarily in the Richmond, Indiana area and was a devotee of the "Richmond Group" of painters. He worked in oil, watercolor and pastels. He worked for a grow old in Brown County, Indiana and is sometimes united with that help of artists.

Born in Muncie, Indiana, Baker lived in Richmond and Centerville most of his life. He studied with John Elwood Bundy, at the Cincinnati Art Academy and the Boothbay Art School. In 1925 he was a visiting studious at Miami University.

His play a part is represented in the collections of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art, Richmond Art Museum, Earlham College, Miami University Art Museum, Morrisson-Reeves Library, Centerville, Indiana Library and a devoted help of private collectors. A painting titled "November Meadows" painted during the era he was an bookish at Miami University hangs today more than the mantle in the formal buzzing room of the Miami president's home, Lewis Place.

The Richmond Art Museum held a retrospective of his act out in 2001 and was said to be the largest exhibition of his produce a result ever mounted.
