    LLOYD GOFF (1908-1982)
    Untitled Industrial Scene
    Oil on canvas
    18 x 22 inches (45.7 x 55.9 cm)
    Unsigned, accompanied by certification by the executor of the Lloyd Goff Estate

    The current exhibition at the Panhandle Plains Museum, Urban Texas: Changing Images of an Evolving State, shows Texas artists increasingly depicted the urbanization of the state as economic and population growth began to transform Texas from a mainly agrarian society. Regionalist artists like Lloyd Goff, who were coming of age in the late 1920s and 1930s, were the generation first affected by these changes. In this painting, Lloyd Goff explores the pictorial possibilities of a large industrial plant. He uses the geometric arrangement of the buildings and smokestacks as a strong design element. He plays these strong linear elements against the organic design elements of billowing smoke in the sky and bushes in the foreground. The resulting painting is a masterpiece of light, color, and form.

    Provenance:
    Estate of Lloyd Goff
