    ROBERT WILLIAM WOOD (American, 1889-1979)
    After a Shower
    Oil on canvas
    25 x 30 inches (63.5 x 76.2 cm)
    Signed lower left: Robert Wood
    Artist's stamp and titled verso: "AFTER A SHOWER"

    The son of a painter, Wood crisscrossed the United States after arriving from his native England in 1911. He first came to Texas in 1924, painting in store windows in Dallas, Houston, and Corpus Christi before settling in San Antonio. Wood studied with Jose Arpa and exhibited in the 1928 San Antonio Competitive. With loose brushwork, powerful color, and spontaneous compositions, Wood's paintings from around 1930 are his most Impressionist. In 1931, Wood moved to an area near Helotes Creek, northwest of San Antonio, where he settled into fairly formulaic Hill Country landscapes by 1940. However, After a Shower, retains some of the spontaneity and freshness of his earlier, more Impressionistic paintings.
