Artist Bob Wygant is often thought of as the Father of all Texas Art. His paintings hang in many important corporate art collections, and he was an advisor to many of today's Texas artists. "Peaceful Haven" is representative of his most popular pieces which usually feature a lone cowboy and his horse as they share the best Texas has to offer for a quiet, peaceful moment.
Bob Wygant holds a special place in the hearts of Texas artist and collectors. He mentored many of the artist, and painted the state as only a true Texan could.
After majoring in art at the University of Texas in Austin, he returned home to Houston to establish his career. Wygant's first success was in commissions by some of the major oil companies in Texas. For several years, the artist worked quietly at home painting for his many clients. His images are in hundreds of homes throughout Texas and are treasured by every owner.
Wygant's growing reputation resulted in being offered a teaching position at the University of Houston, where he inspired multitudes of students for 16 years. The artist also worked with the internationally famous Houston Livestock Show in judging students' art and awarding scholarships... a way to give something back to the community.
Bob Wygant's magical use of acrylics earned him a reputation as a master of this medium. His paintings are vibrant, colorful scenes that allow the viewer to participate in the mood and emotion emanating from his subjects. He has always been driven to relay his love of the Western landscape and the many memories of the quiet, rural life through his paint brush.
