    David Dike Fine Art, Dallas, October 16, 1999, lot 163.


    Barney Delabano was born in Denison, Texas but moved to Dallas in 1942 to study at the Aunspaugh Art School. He quickly became a protégé of Jerry Bywaters and studied with many of the other leading artists from a group of Texas Regionalists known as The Dallas Nine, including Alexandre Hogue, Olin Travis, and Otis Dozier. He spent much of his career as a teacher and exhibit artist at the Dallas Museum of Art. Younger than the "old-guard" Texas Regionalists, his work has recently begun to attract more attention from early Texas art collectors.
