George Ivers (1922-2001) was an extraordinarily gifted and prolific Polish artist resident in New Jersey.
He is noteworthy for his expertise in a wide variety of media - oil, watercolor, sculpture (metal, wire, papier-mache, porcelain and paper), porcelain miniatures and graphics.
This Gallery provides examples of his work in many different media, created 1950 to 1999.
He came to U.S.A in 1945, after a dangerous wartime experience in prison camps and as a sailor in Atlantic convoys.
He was a designer for Lenox China and later art director at Cybis Porcelains.
Unfortunately his career was cut short by Parkinson's disease.

Ivers 1998 His work may be found in many museums, at the White House, in the Vatican, and in numerous private collections. It is noteworthy that Parkinson's disease started in the early 1980s and gradually grew worse. Nevertheless, he continued with his art work in all media. In the 1990s he strapped weights to his wrists to lower the intensity of his tremors.

His wife, Iris, aided him in arranging for exhibitions, sales of his work. and donations to organizations. In recognition, George always added an "iris flower", wherever appropriate, in his paintings and etchings (see the right hand lower corner of the painting "Adam & Eve" in first row of gallery below.)

Most of the items shown in the Gallery below are from the personal collection of his widow, Iris Ivers.
