    PROVENANCE:
    Lois Hogue Shaw;
    By descent to Pat Fritz.

    Lois Hogue Shaw was born in 1897 and attended Sweetwater High School. After she received her B.A. degree in art from Baylor Female College, she studied at several art schools, including the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York. Hogue would go on to teach at Abilene Christian College, Baylor Female College, and McMurry College. She eventually married and settled in Sweetwater, Texas.

    These three works of art represent several different periods in her career. Figure in a Landscape was painted in 1931, Neighborhood Water Supply in 1946, and Still Life with Green Bottle in 1962. They run the gamut in style, subject, and execution and show her range as an artist.
