Cowboy
Oil on canvas
20 x 16 inches (50.8 x 40.6 cm)
Artist's stamp verso

The Collection of Joe and Jean Oliver.
PROVENANCE:
The Estate of Olin Travis;
Thence by decent to Joe and Jean Oliver.

Olin Travis straddled two art worlds in Dallas: the older Impressionists and the younger Regionalists. Renowned for his introspective portraits, in Cowboy Travis is at his Regionalist best. Using the "artificial geometries" of Grant Wood and Alexandre Hogue to stylize the hat, shoulders, and shirt collar, the artist plants his work firmly in the modernist leanings of Regionalism. Travis captures the character of the square-chinned face and emphasizes the outdoor man through the sunburned neck and ears and the lattice-work corral and live oaks in the background.

Condition Report*:

Original canvas; appears to be slightly raised craquelure in sky in upper left quadrant; stable surface; under UV exam, appears to be scattered pin points of inpainting in cowboy's shirt along botton edge and in sky around cowboy's hat. Framed Dimensions 25.5 X 21.5 Inches
