Description

Thomas L. Lewis (1907-1978), "Texas Bluebonnets", oil on canvasboard, 8 x 10", frame: 12 x 14"

Born in Bay City, Texas, Thomas became a painter of detailed Southwest landscapes and an art gallery owner in Taos, New Mexico. He was a professional artist from the age of nineteen and began by painting scenes of the American South. In the early 1930s, he began experimenting with sepia-tones and desert painting and developed a sophisticated range of colors, which were particularly expressive of the desert country. After the War, he settled in Taos, New Mexico, and Bert Phillips, founder of the Taos Art Colony, became one of his best friends. His paintings are in the Gilcrease Institute of American History, the University of Arizona Art Museum, and many private collections.
