George Schwegmann - Pastoral Espada

This charming painting depicts a sheep herder, wearing customary Mexican attire, on a crisp winter morning tending his flock amid the regional thorny brush country. They pass near Mission Espada (one of the five San Antonio missions designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site) in a coarse and unkempt state as it may have appeared in the late 19th century.

Of his painting, Schwegmann states..."A "Spanish" pastoral of the San Antonio Mission Espada, a tribute to a simpler era and yet an ever changing South Texas region, a period of neglect, disrepair, abandonment, and yet reverence for the history and culture that makes San Antonio unique."

The Paintings of George Schwegmann
George Schwegmann is a native of San Antonio who has grown up with a deep appreciation for the rich, natural, historical and cultural environment of South Central Texas. With a Bachelor's degree in Zoology and two years of Architectural Design, this self-taught artist depicts a wide variety of unique visual compositions.

George is an award winning member of the San Antonio River Art Group. In 1997 he won First Prize in the River Art's Exhibition & Competition in the Acrylics as Watercolors category, judged by Dalhart Windberg, a renown Texas artist. His paintings have won numerous awards from 1997 to the present. Over the past decade, admiration for his work has grown rapidly as several gallery owners and private collectors have added his paintings to their collections.

In his signature style developed over many decades, Schwegmann navigates traditional Texas wildlife themes with a loose-brushstroke that accentuates dramatic lighting to evoke an emotional response that's essentially impressionistic.

Constantly challenging and exploring the use of acrylics and watercolor to achieve excellence in representational art is the continuing quest for this local Texas artist. His Central Texas subjects include the San Antonio missions, Hill Country landscapes, bluebonnets, quail, turkey, deer, and longhorns. His love for the Texas coast is shown in his shrimp-boats, fish, waterfowl, and seascapes.
