George Frederick Harris (1856–1924) was a Welsh portrait and landscape painter.

Harris lived in Merthyr Tydfil for most of his life, before emigrating to Australia in 1920.[1]

Notable among his descendants is composer and painter Rolf Harris.[1]

Two of G. F. Harris's paintings, dated 1893 and 1896, were auctioned by Bonhams auctioneers in 2005.[1] There are over 40 paintings attributed to Harris now held by public bodies or in public art collections.[2]
