Description

A.D. Greer (1904-1998), Lake Scene, oil on canvas, 25 x 30", frame: 31 x 36"

An artist, poet, lecturer, and illustrator, A.D. Greer became a legend among Texas landscape painters because of his popularity and the high-dollar values of his luminist, romantic paintings. Greer was born in Oklahoma Territory and in 1907 was taken to Hutchinson, Kansas where he grew up on a farm. He studied at St. Johns Academy in Salina, Kansas. He worked as a logger in the Colorado Rockies--which provided him opportunity to explore mountain ranges and other landscapes that became subjects of his paintings. He was a member of the Guild of Freelance Artists in New York.
