    DENNIS BLAGG (American, b. 1951)
    Untitled
    Watercolor on paper
    19-1/2 x 16 inches (49.5 x 40.6 cm) window
    Signed lower left: Dennis Blagg

    Born in Oklahoma City and a resident of Fort Worth, Dennis Blagg is a self-taught painter whose work chiefly features landscapes of Texas's Big Bend region, and his work is in the collections of museums across Texas. The style of the painting reflects the influence of American Tonalist painters like Andrew Wyeth. In Tonalism, the color palette is manipulated to create the mood. This atmosphere gives additional meaning to whatever subject is being depicted in the realistic style characteristic of Tonalism. In this beautiful watercolor, Dennis Blagg has created a poignant image using that icon of the modern American West: the jean jacket. Hanging in moody, gray-toned isolation, the jacket evokes the solitude, which is often a part of the work life of ranchers and those who work the land.
