Often referred to as “the dean of (early) Texas artists,” Frank Reaugh (1860-1945) devoted his career to painting and drawing the southwestern frontier’s landscapes, wild Longhorns, and trail drives. The Harry Ransom Center at UT-Austin explores the work and influence of Reaugh with more than 100 pieces—mostly pastel drawings and watercolor paintings—in the exhibition Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West. Based in Oak Cliff, Reaugh made regular trips west, and in the process developed artistic tools such as a folding lap easel and compact carrying case for pastels. August 4-November 29, 2015.
