dc.description.abstract Alexandre Hogue (b. 1898) has been active as an artist in Texas and Oklahoma throughout much of this century. He has also been a vocal supporter of the arts of this region. In the 1930s and 1940s he completed three murals under government auspices and entered competitions for four others. This paper will reconstruct the events surrounding the mural competitions and commissions with which Hogue was involved. A formal analysis of the murals will be made and their critical acclaim and public reception discussed. Mural painting offered a venue for Texas artists to express their regional view that truly successful art must reflect what the artist knows best, and that it should be accessible to and understood by a broad number of people. Hogue's murals can be seen as an extension of his commitment to develop an idiom that was an expression and interpretation of his region.
