It is fortunate to have not one but two DeForrest Judd masterpieces in this auction. Such different pictures, but each so Texas. This one is a modernist version of a ghost town.
Judd leaves out certain details and emphasizes others. The background and sky are purely decorative with a flattened perspective. The foreground is also decorative and fractured into planes. The regionalist flavor is still present, but a more modern post-regionalist approach is an equal partner in the composition.
