    Nancy Conrad (American, born 1940)

    Guadalupe Reflections
    1986
    Oil on canvas
    Signed lower right corner: Conrad
    48 x 48 inches (121.9 x 121.9 cm)

    Nancy Conrad, an artist with a strong affiliation with Texas, currently has studios in Texas and Montana. Her fine art is shown in museums, corporate and private collections throughout the Southwest. With degrees in painting and art history from Randolph Macon College, she studied for 12 years at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts School on a full scholarship. Besides completing realistic scenes of her native surroundings, she teaches, has done book illustrations and maintains a busy schedule of gallery exhibitions. Listed in Who's Who in American Art with her work appearing in Southwest Art magazine, Conrad began holding one-woman shows as early as 1962. Her work is represented in the collection of American Women Artistis and her insight on landscapes is unique. "I strive to go beyond the obvious in my large landscape works," she says. "Space, light and silence are my focus."

    In Guadalupe Reflections, Conrad brings her realist style to its pinnacle creating a lifelike image of the beautiful Guadalupe River in her native Texas. One can almost feel the refreshing invitation of the water on the hot summer's day, the craggy bluff a precipitous jumping-off point. Conrad's use of shades of green and blue dominate the picture as looming clouds give way to the lush foliage thriving on the river's edge. The Texas hill country being one of Conrad's favorite subjects, wild and untamed, she has captured one of its most beautiful scenes.

    Provenance:
    Purchased from Adelle M. Gallery, Dallas (1986)
