Don’t miss your opportunity to own a Thomas George original. 

Thomas George (1918-2014) was an internationally recognized artist whose work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the National Gallery of American Art, the Tate Gallery, and many other museums and major collections in the United States and abroad. 

Tom was a resident of Princeton, N.J. and used the local scenery of Marquand Park and the Institute for Advanced Studies as inspiration for tree and garden studies. However, always seeking new inspiration for his work, he travelled extensively with his family throughout Europe and the Far East. He found particular inspiration in the dramatic landscapes of Japan, China and, especially, Norway, where he maintained a home and worked every summer for over 30 years.

Thomas George was a prolific and successful artist and his popular local shows included the Princeton University Art Museum (2005) and the Arts Council of Princeton (2011) before he passed away in 2014. Tom is survived by his sons, John and Geoff George, who own a large collection of his works including wood cuts, prints, oils, drawings, pastels and watercolors.

The Arts Council of Princeton, in partnership with John and Geoff, will be hosting a sale of Thomas George’s artwork from August 1-4, 2024 in our Taplin Gallery. All works – from sketches to framed works – will be offered at very exciting price points with a portion benefiting ACP community programs.

There will truly be something for everyone at this special sale, so don’t miss your opportunity to own and cherish a Thomas George original.
