Harlan Hubbard (American/Kentucky/Indiana (1900-1988)

Harlan Hubbard was a writer, artist and modern day Thoreau. He is best known for his books of his travels in a shantyboat down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and the self sufficient life he and his wife Anna, lived for more than forty years on a homestead they carved out an Ohio River Bank.

He created paintings, murals, watercolors and line drawings. Some of his finest work is found in woodblock prints he produced through his life. There is a museum of his work in Covington, Kentucky.
