OVID - Bob Harman of the Covert Farm in Ovid, NY died on Wednesday, September 16, 2009.
Born in Rochester, New York, a son of the late H. A. and Lottie Lee (Covert) Harman. A former professional actor, Bob Harman began his art career doing caricatures of his fellow performers. His paintings, including portraits of Marion Anderson, Archibald Macleish, Dean Acheson and John D. Rockefeller II, are owned by many institutions. In 1971 he created "The Hollywood Panorama" a 5x9 foot montage of 1001 film stars against a background of famous sets and Hollywood landmarks. It was published in a book form by E.P. Dutton. He followed this with three more books including, "Enchanted Faces"- portraits of film actresses between the two World Wars. Dubbed the "Artist of the Stars", his column "Movie Memories" appeared for 5 years in a national newspaper. In 2000 he was selected as one of the artists to be represented in the special one year bicentennial exhibit at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. For several years he was retired in Santa Barbara, CA and his family home in Ovid, NY.
