Dalhart Windberg

Dalhart Windberg (born 1933 (86 years ago) in Goliad County, Texas) is an American painter known for his masterful use of light, color, and shadow in still life and landscape paintings.

Windberg was named for a popular entertainer of the day Vernon Dalhart,. He was in the army and did a tour of duty in Europe. In 1967 (52 years ago), he quit working in order to paint full-time.

A Texas native, Windberg began to attract national attention in the 1960 (59 years ago). He studied under the Texas painter Simon Michael. Windberg was determined to paint like the masters; so, he developed a way to have a smooth surface by using diluted modeling paste to prepare his painting surface. By using this technique he could duplicate the look of the masters without spending as much time on each painting. He has executed romantic still lifes and figurative oil paintings depicting life in Texas, Mexico, Spain and Greece;

Two biographies have been written about the artist. In The Paths of the Masters, published in 1978 (41 years ago) and Dalhart Windberg - Artist of Texas, published by the University of Texas press in 1984 (35 years ago). Its title was bestowed on the artist by the state legislature in 1979 (40 years ago). He has also written a book describing his "smooth surface" technique of oil painting.

Windberg and his wife Evelyn live and work in Georgetown, Texas.
