    David Brownlow, a self-taught painter, is a member of the Fort Worth Circle. He is popular among Texas art collectors for his use of trowels and putty knives to create thickly painted surfaces. Architectural structures were the frequent subject of his abstract imagery. However, in the case of Portrait of Pitchers, he uses geometric forms, interesting surfaces, and subdued colors to create a still life instead of an edifice. Brownlow has a talent for depicting structures like cathedrals that almost become sympathetic characters, just as he has anthropomorphized this group of pitchers and titled the painting as a portrait instead of a still life.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
