    Signed faintly lower right: BBomar

    Bill Bomar was one of the driving forces behind the artistic development of the Fort Worth Circle, a group of artists and friends who dominated the art scene in Fort Worth from the 1930s to the 1950s. They explored contemporary art movements, especially Modernism, Surrealism, and non-objective abstraction. In fact, Bomar may have been the most influential member of the group. He certainly increased their exposure to the newest styles and artists by facilitating the exchange of art and ideas between Fort Worth and New York, two places where Bomar often hosted members of the Fort Worth Circle. Most likely, distinct from the Dallas Nine, it was through this exposure that the Fort Worth Circle was influenced more by contemporary international art than by American Regionalism.
