Dallas's first native professional artist, Travis trained at the Art Institute of Chicago and began teaching at the AIC in 1914 and later at the Chicago Commercial Art School. He co-founded with his wife, painter Kathryne Hail Travis, the Art Institute of Dallas in 1926. Travis exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as in the Texas artists annual in Fort Worth, the annual Dallas Allied Arts, the Texas Centennial Exposition (1936), and the Greater Texas and Pan-American Exposition (1937). The Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (now the Dallas Museum of Art) also held at least three solo exhibitions for Travis.
Travis and his wife, painter Kathryne Hail Travis, conducted a summer art school in the mountains near Cass, Arkansas, from the 1920s through the mid-1930s. Both were also drawn to the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado. This painting may depict a peak in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.
