Description
Sumptuously illustrated, this catalogue is the definitive resource on Julian Onderdonk, an American Impressionist artist who lived and worked primarily in Texas. A native of San Antonio, who trained in New York with William Merritt Chase, Onderdonk (1882-1922) created vibrant paintings of the Texas landscape. This publication authoritatively demonstrates the breadth, quality, and brilliance of Onderdonk's work, and illustrates his oeuvre--more than 1,200 pieces--in full. The book also includes an extensive chronology of the artist's life and career, as well as an essay by Emily Ballew Neff, an expert on Western American art. The first publication to document the complete works of this talented artist, this catalogue raisonne brings Onderdonk's extraordinary, lyrical paintings to a long-deserved national audience.
