Florence McClung (1894-1992), "Wild Horse Peaks", 1954, lithograph, image: 10.5 x 14.75", frame: 18.75 x 22.75"

Florence McClung began painting when she was introduced to a circle of artists in Dallas (where she was based for most of her life), who frequented the Taos, New Mexico artists' colony. After several trips to Taos in the 1920s and 30s, where she worked among notable contemporaries including Alexandre Hogue and Mabel Dodge, McClung traveled to New York and to the Cincinnati Art Institute to study painting formally. She became a darling among the Texas regionalist artists, as a result receiving numerous local and national prizes as well as a commission to paint the Colorado mural Ute Indian History in Chicago Creek and Idaho Springs for the Works Projects Administration in 1936 and an acquisition by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, making her the first Texan artist in the collection.
