George Faulkner Wetherbee (1851-1920) was born in Cincinnati. His artistic talent was evident at a young age and he was sent to Europe to study in art schools at Antwerp, then London. He lived in various countries on the continent of Europe, and frequently visited the West Indies to paint there. He achieved success in his 40s, with recognition by the distinguished London art societies, and his mastery of colour and light were highly acclaimed. He worked in both oils and watercolour, mostly showing idyllic landscapes with figures of young people.
