Houston San Antonio

A Virtual Exhibition of Fine Texas Paintings

Collectors of early Texas paintings appreciate the fact that fresh works by pioneer Texas artists are shown less frequently and generally harder to come by these days. For this reason, William Reaves Fine Art and Beuhler Fine Art are pleased to combine forces to offer an interesting new selection of early Texas works. FALL SELECTION is the first of a planned series of virtual exhibitions featuring the state's premier painters working during the first half of the twentieth century. The exhibition presents a significant gathering of 30 paintings by over 20 Texas artists. We think that the works presented in this show, whether large or small in scale, consistently hold their own as sound examples of the artists' oeuvre. Those familiar with early Texas art will appreciate the overall quality of the works shown, as well as the range of artists represented. Those new to the field will enjoy this virtual exhibition as an opportunity to become better acquainted with the work of many of the most prominent of our early Lone Star artists.

The virtual nature of this exhibition offers a comfortable viewing alternative for experienced collectors to make selections that can expand and enhance existing collections. The show also presents a wonderful opportunity for new collectors to acquire significant works to inaugurate their own new assemblages of Texas art. The catalogue format enables patrons to study and consider the works at their own convenience, and it is our hope that Texas art enthusiasts will come to enjoy receiving and perusing these occasional catalogues as a welcomed new addition to their overall collecting experience. All works in the catalogue may be viewed on-site at William Reaves Fine Art during the term of the exhibition, or interested clients may contact the gallery for additional images or details regarding the paintings shown. Prices are available upon request to the gallery. We hope that you will enjoy this exhibition. We look forward to hearing from you. William Reaves and Paul Beuhler

José Arpa

José Arpa (1858-1952) was a prominent San Antonio artist. Born in Spain, Arpa received early training at the School of Fine Arts near Seville. Arpa settled in San Antonio around 1900, working as director of his San Antonio Art School (1926-29). His work has been included in numerous exhibitions, such as: World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago (1893); Annual Exhibition of the State Fair of Texas, Dallas (1901); The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (1924); and the Edgar B. Davis Competition, San Antonio (1927-29). José Arpa is well known for his Texas landscapes, as well as urban-scapes in the state. The artist completed Open Gates, a Galveston subject, in 1928. It was commissioned by Mrs. Magnolia Sealy, first matron of the Sealy mansion, who died before receiving the painting from the artist. The painting depicts the Sealy home, designed by distinguished American architect Stanford White (his only home designed west of the Mississippi). Local construction was overseen by Nicholas Clayton, the premier Texas architect of the day. At the time of its construction, the Sealy home was deemed the most magnificent of Galveston homes and ranked among the most prominent of Texas residents. In the painting, the artist incorporates the island's signature Oleander flowers, which were planted city-wide as a beautification tool after the deadly 1900 hurricane. Also featured in the painting is the base of the Texas Heroes monument, by Louis Amateis, the island's tribute to the sacrifices of Texans during the war of independence from Mexico. Arpa painted at least one other great Texas cityscape of this scale, Irish Flats, in the collection of the San Antonio Art League. Open Gates rivals this work as a beautifully rendered oil painting, recording landmark segments of Texas cities in the opening decades of the 20th century. Open Gates is oil on canvas. 24x34 inches. Signed lower left by the artist. Condition is excellent.

He taught at the Dallas Art Institute in the 1920s and 1930s and was later director of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in the 1950s and 1960s. The artist completed a mural in the Hall of State, Fair Park, Dallas, which was executed for the 1936 Centennial Exposition. Bassett's work has been included in exhibitions such as: Annual Texas Artist Exhibition, Fort Worth (1923-27); Annual Exhibition, National Academy of Design, New York (1925); Annual Allied Arts Exhibition, Dallas (1928-29, 1931-32). Reveau Bassett was also a student of Frank Reaugh, who attained great notoriety as a Texas artist, particularly of sporting subjects, in his own right. In 1923, Bassett participated in one of Frank Reaugh's storied student expeditions and painted this wonderful pastel entitled Edwards Plateau Cloud Shadows.

A student at the Art Institute of Chicago and Art Students League of New York, Cherry also traveled and studied at several studios in Paris. Cherry taught privately in Houston and was active in the Texas art life, including organizing the Houston Public School Art League (forerunner of the Museum of Fine Arts). Her work has been included in such exhibitions as: World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago (1893); Annual Exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists, New York (1922, 1924); Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (1923, 1925, 1931); Annual Houston Artists Exhibition (1925-38, 1942-47); Edgar B. Davis Competition, San Antonio (1927-28). Mrs. Cherry was Houston's first professional artist, and one of the first practicing women artists in the state. While she resided in Houston, she was a frequent visitor to San Antonio, where her son-inlaw was an officer at the Randolph Air Force Base. During her career, Mrs. Cherry painted numerous garden scenes, including the general's garden at Randolph Field. This painting previously hung in the home of her grandson, and is presented in its original Italian frame. The painting bears two exhibition stickers, one from the Southern States Art League from 1922, and the other sticker is believed to be from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston exhibition.

José Cisneros

José Cisneros (1910-2009) was an active artist and illustrator in El Paso. Although he received some training at El Valle de Allende in Mexico and Lydia Patterson Institute in El Paso, Cisneros was largely self-taught. By 1937 he had entered into a long-term collaboration with Carl Hertzog, the famous book designer and publisher, which led to the inclusion of his work in several prize-winning books. Cisneros' work has been included in exhibitions such as: Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (1949); El Paso Museum of History (1992); Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, Canyon; Witte Memorial Museum, San Antonio. This accomplished El Paso draftsman and illustrator was also a protégé of the great Tom Lea. Cisneros left a record of riders and travelers of the El Paso area after the centuries of its existence as the great of the north. He was a fellow at Frank Dobie's Paisano Ranch and illustrated many books on these El Paso subjects. The pen and ink works offered here are of Texas Rangers and Buffalo Soldiers. Cisneros illustrated books on each of the subjects. They are inscribed to Harold Miller, a patron of the artist and rare book collector.

Fred Darge

Fred Darge (1900-1978) was an artist in Dallas. Darge attended both the Art Institute of Chicago and Art Students League of New York. The artist spent a large portion of his time out in West Texas, specializing in painting those scenes.

Fred Darge is especially known for painting Western subject matter. He often painted goats and goat herders. He painted the herder named Old Pedro, included herein, on more than one occasion. In this painting, Darge depicts Old Pedro in conversation with a wandering cowhand, visiting while resting on his fabulous pinto pony. This is a classic Darge subject matter, painted early after his migration to Texas and beautifully rendered by the artist.

8. Fred Darge A Friendly Encounter, c.1944 oil/canvas 20x24 in.

Dawson Dawson-Watson

Dawson Dawson-Watson (1864-1939) was a San Antonio artist. He received early training from American painter William Mark Fisher. Dawson-Watston also studied under many artists while in Paris. He was director of the Harford Art Society in Connecticut from 1893-96. The artist has also taught at the St. Louis School for the Arts (1904-15). Dawson-Watson later served as director of the San Antonio Artists Guild in 1918. He settled permanently in San Antonio in 1926, winning the National Prize for the local Edgar B. Davis Competition in 1927.

Davis Competition, San Antonio (1927-29). The painting shown here is a classic Dawson-Watson cactus subject matter. It is significant in scale and incorporates the rich and vivid palette for which the artist is known.

9. Dawson Dawson-Watson Untitled (Blooming on the Gallagher Ranch), 1938 oil/canvas 25x30 in.

Jacob Elshin

Jacob Elshin (1892-1976) was a painter, muralist, and illustrator. He studied at the Nicholas Calvary School and the Russian Imperial Academy in St. Petersburg. Elshin moved to Seattle in 1923, where he was a member of Puget Sound Group of Northwest Men Painters, Washington Artists Union, Northwest Watercolor Society, and Pacific Coast Artists Association. His work has been included in exhibitions such as: Seattle Art Museum (1937-1965); Portland Art Museum; Corcoran Gallery, Wash. D.C.; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC. Although a Seattle-based artist, Elshin took it upon himself to enter the Dallas Post Office Mural competition in 1938. He chose as his subjects two views of the state's historic "Alamo." The first of his studies, Mission Builders, 19 1/2 x42 1/2 inches, depicts Spanish soldiers and indigenous tribes at work constructing the original mission. This scene is accompanied by the larger panel entitled Defenders of the Alamo, which invokes the struggles of the martyrs during the battle. These studies are well-executed examples of the artist's work. They are historically significant as artifacts of Texas WPA mural competitions and convey classic Texas subject matter.

Davis Competition, San Antonio (1927-29); Elisabet Ney Museum, Austin, 1932, 1936); University of Texas, Austin (1936). This is a small but strong example of Ms. Mewhinney's landscapes featuring Texas bluebonnets.

24. Ella Mewhinney Untitled (Bluebonnets at Sunset), n/d oil/canvasboard 8x10 in.

Frank Reaugh

Frank Reaugh (1860-1945) was a Dallas artist, although he grew up on a small ranch in Kaufman County. During this time, Reaugh developed a lifelong interest in nature, studying the family livestock and later making sketches during the cattle drives he accompanied. He received more training at the St. Louis School for the Arts and the Academie Julian. In 1890, Reaugh moved to Dallas were he opened his own studio and school, as well as serving as director of the Dallas School of Fine Arts. By the 1890s, Reaugh began his annual sketching expeditions to West Texas, and by 1916, had begun to bring his students along for the trips. His work was included in exhibitions such as: World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago (1893); Louisiana Purchase Exposition, St. Louis (1904); Annual Texas Artists Exhibition, Fort Worth (1910, 1913-14, 1917-18, 1920, 1922-29, 1931-37); Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (1939). Frank Reaugh is noted for his plein-air studies of the Texas landscape, often featuring cattle subjects on the open range. This small jewel of a painting captures Reaugh's signature subject matter, featuring cattle grazing against a canyon backdrop. It is a fine example of the artist's oeuvre, and bears the inscription on verso of the prominent Texas writer J. Evetts Haley, transmitting the piece as a gift to the present owner's grandmother.

Salinas' works have been included in exhibitions such as: Laguna Gloria Art Museum, Austin (1947); San Antonio Local Artists Annual Exhibition (1953); Coppini Academy of Fine Arts, San Antonio (1958-59). Shown here are two exceptional examples of early Texas landscapes by this important painter. These small gems are from the early 1940s, a particularly strong period in the artist's life. One presents the colorful fall foliage of the Texas hill country, the other depicts West Texas subject matter, including the blooming yucca plants for which he was known.
