Alexandre Hogue


Memphis, Missouri


Indian genre and modernist-leaning landscape painter, lithographs graphics

A painter, printmaker, and muralist known for his Dust Bowl series and early 20th-century depictions of Indian life in Taos, New Mexico, Alexander Hogue worked in a style that was abstract and realistic.  In Taos, where he first arrived in 1926,  he was especially interested in the pueblo Indians spiritual lives and relationship to the land.  From 1945, he held an art faculty position at The University of Tulsa in Oklahoma, having taught earlier at Texas State College for Women in Denton, and the Hockaday School for Girls in Dallas.
