Limited Edition Canvas Giclee. Published from the artist’s original work. His pastoral paintings earned Julian the title “bluebonnet painter,” a distinction he forever disdained. Julian Onderdonk died at an early age, but the “bluebonnet” style of painting continues in Texas as a testament to one of Texas’ outstanding artists.”There are bluebonnet paintings, and then there are bluebonnet paintings. Certain Julian Onderdonk paintings transcend the pejorative designations; this is one of those works.” — Michael Grauer, Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs/Curator of Art at the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum.
