CHARLES TAYLOR BOWLING (American, 1891-1985)
    Ice Storm
    Oil on masonite
    16 x 26 inches (40.6 x 66.0 cm)
    Signed lower left: Chas T Bowling

    A lithographer and painter, Bowling was born in Quitman, Texas. He began painting in his mid-30s, while recovering from an illness, and studied with Alexandre Hogue, Frank Klepper, and with Olin Travis at the Art Institute of Dallas, where he later taught. A founder of the Lone Star Printmakers, he also belonged to the Frank Reaugh Art Club; the Southern States Art League; and the Texas Fine Arts Association. Bowling exhibited at the Dallas Allied Arts, the Texas Centennial Exposition, and the Lone Star Printmakers circuits.
    In Ice Storm, Bowling stylizes forms in a manner consistent with the paintings of Midwestern Regionalist Charles Burchfield. While Bowling painted both urban and rural scenes consistent with the Regionalist canon, his work often contains the same dark or even macabre edge found in Burchfield's work.
