John Dawson Watson







       The British artist Dawson Dawson-Watson (1864-1939) became famous for being the recipient of one of the grandest prizes in American Art, a $5,000 award for winning the first annual Texas Wildflower Competitive Exhibition in 1927.

    While Dawson-Watson is known primarily today for the works that he did in Texas during the 1920s and 1930s, he was a well-traveled painter and teacher who played an important role in the development of the colony of Impressionists in Giverny, the Arts & Crafts movement in Boston, the art colony in Woodstock, New York, the Washington University School of Fine Art in St. Louis and finally, the art scene in San Antonio.


    He was a versatile artist who not only worked in oils and watercolors, but painted murals, designed furniture and crafted picture frames.
