About

Ralph D. McLellan (1884-1977) Rider on the Ranch, San Marcos, Texas, 1928 Oil on canvas, 30 x 36 in. Framed dimensions: 34 1/2 x 40 1/2 inches Signed and dated lower right: Ralph McLellan / ‘28 Born in 1884 in San Marcos, Texas, Ralph McLellan studied art and exhibited works at San Antonio fairs under the tutelage of a Miss Maggie Buchanan. He moved to Boston in 1916, and enrolled at the Museum of Fine Arts School, where he studied under Frank Benson, Philip Leslie Hale, and Edmund Tarbell. After seven years in Boston, he moved to New York where he continued his studies with F. Louis Mora and Thomas Fogarty at the Art Students League. McLellan taught at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School and at the University of Chicago. He exhibited his work at the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Rider on the Ranch, San Marcos, Texas was inspired by McLellan’s Texas roots. A cowboy rides by a farmhouse painted in bright purples and yellows with subtle hints of blue. A large tree shades the house, and a towering windmill dwarfs the figure of the rider. The scene is infused with strong, vibrant color. McLellan’s realistic portrayal of form is representative of the Texas Regionalist style, which sought to portray local scenes while incorporating aspects of modernism.
