Born in Ohio, Peter Hohnstedt was self taught. After settling in San Antonio in 1929, Hohnstedt moved to Comfort, Texas, in the early 1940s, painting in the surrounding countryside, the Big Bend and Pecos River areas, and Mexico. Peter Hohnstedt exhibited extensively, and his work is in the collection of the Witte Museum, San Antonio.
Country Hillside is an excellent example of American Regionalism in Texas. Unlike his pure landscapes, this image depicts a vista with a farm. The clear, linear style with many earth tones similar to the WPA style that characterizes American Regionalists in the first half of the twentieth century. The popularity of such pictures has grown over the last few years and demand for paintings like this one will likely increase as well.
