Harold Buck Weaver  (1889-1961)
 
Biography from AskART:
Born in England, he was originally a horse jockey who became a landscape painter in the western United States.
 
He came to America with the intention of becoming a cowboy, but the study of painting with Maynard Dixon changed his direction. They became life-long friends and traveled and sketched together throughout the Southwest. Most of his Arizona paintings date from the 1930s.
 
About 1917, he was in Laguna Beach, where he became good friends with Edgar Payne, who taught him to make carved and gold leaf frames. He later settled in Los Angeles and worked as a picture framer while painting southwestern landscapes.
