George Biddle was an American artist, perhaps best known as a printmaker and for his support of government funding for art and artists. Born in Philadelphia to a prominent Philadelphia family, Biddle was educated at the Groton School and Harvard. Rather than practice law, he chose to travel and study art. He served in World War I, and then continued his travels and studies, mingling with the Lost Generation in Paris. His early prints and paintings were admired as attractive, but considered somewhat lacking in theme; his art gradually became more sophisticated, commenting notably on social conditions in the United States. Biddle was a major supporter of social art, and worked with former classmate Franklin D. Roosevelt to form the Public Works of Art Project, as well as similar projects.

Painter, mural painter; Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y.

It was Biddle who recommended to long-time friend, Franklin Roosevelt, a federal relief art program for artists during the Depression, giving rise to the Public Works of Art Project and subsequent art projects of the Treasury Department and Works Progress Administration. Biddle painted the murals for the Department of Justice in 1935 under the Section of Painting and Sculpture which later became the Section of Fine Arts, as well as several other mural commissions for the government. He died in 1973.
