Description

Hugo Herbeck (1923-2009), Hill Country Landscape, 1966, oil on canvas, 24 x 36", frame: 31 x 43"

Born in Laredo, Texas on May 23, 1923, he served with the US Army during WWII, stationed in Italy where he met his wife Roberta. They settled in San Antonio, Texas and raised their four daughters. It has been stated that Herbeck studied commercial art, but it was his love for the Texas hill country that influenced his artwork. Herbeck's colorful landscapes of oak trees and bluebonnets became his trademark. Through the years his paintings have been displayed in galleries throughout Texas. Porfirio Salinas had a great impact on Herbeck's style, claiming that Hugo was his only student. The two went on sketching trips together through Texas and Mexico, as documented in a book written by Salinas' wife.
