Peter Hurd

Peter Hurd was born in Roswell, New Mexico, and was known for his western landscape, genre, and portrait work of Indians, Mexicans, and Caucasians in lithography, water color, and egg tempura. He began as a student at West Point Military Academy, but left in 1923 to study art with N.C. Wyeth at his home in North Carolina, and in 1924, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. During the WPA years he painted murals in Texas and New Mexico, as well as accomplishing dramatic portraits and landscapes of the people near his ranch home, close to San Patricio, New Mexico. In the Second World War, Hurd, did work for Life Magazine, while with the United States Air Force.
