    The life of the best-known Texas Impressionist, Julian Onderdonk, almost perfectly brackets the rise, practice, and decline of Impressionist painting in the United States. Following studies with his father, Robert Onderdonk, Julian Onderdonk began studying under William Merritt Chase in the Shinnecock Hills on Long Island in 1901. Chase provided the younger Onderdonk with the tools to paint the south-central Texas landscape in an Impressionist manner. Julian Onderdonk's landscapes inspired exhibitions of Texas wildflower paintings held in San Antonio from 1927 to 1929, and ultimately gave rise to the ubiquitous "Bluebonnet School," prevalent in Texas even today. Famous for his bluebonnet paintings, his paintings of coreopsis and other Texas wildflowers are often among his best.
