Known for his scenes of the California coast, Rocky Mountain landscapes and depictions of the springtime flowering of the Texas Bluebonnets , Robert W. Wood probably painted more works of the landscape of the United States than any artist in the annals of American art. Although he was bon in England, he worked in the United States for almost sixty years and became known as an American painter. Once he reached artistic maturity in the late 1920s, his output was prodigious, and the facile artist often completed a painting a day.
