  • About Peter Hurd (Wikipedia):"Hurd soon began studying under the illustratorN.C. Wyeth. He worked as Wyeth's assistant atChadds Ford, Pennsylvania, for a number of years. In 1929, he married Wyeth's daughter,Henriette Wyeth, an artist who later became known for her portraits andstill lifepaintings. Hurd was a war correspondent forLifeduringWorld War II. From 1953 to 1954, Hurd, assisted by his protégésManuel AcostaandJohn Meigsas well as his wife Henriette, painted afrescomuralin the rotunda of what was then the West Texas Museum (nowHoldenHall) at Texas Technological College (nowTexas Tech University) inLubbock. Hurd painted about one fresco per week over a two-year period, with depictions of pioneers and influential leaders of West Texas.[1]Those portrayed on the mural include the merchantCrone W. Furr, founder of Furr's Supermarkets,Robert Franklin Dunn, a pioneer Methodist minister and circuit-rider, journalistJames Lorenzo Dow, cattlemanWilliam E. Halsell, philanthropistDora Nunn Roberts, oilmanSid W. Richardson, and physicianMarvin C. Overton. One panel, entitled "The Chroniclers", depicts historianJ. Evetts Haley,William Curry Holden,Tom Lea, andJohn A. Lomaxgathered around a blazing campfire. Hurd himself is also in the scene, sketchpad in hand. In 1957, he collaborated withFolkways Recordsand released his album,Spanish Folk Songs of New Mexico,a collection of ranching songs. By 1958, his recognition had spread, and he was appointed to the President’s Commission of Fine Arts. In 1967, he painted what would have beenLyndon B. Johnson's official portrait. President Johnson only allowed Hurd one sitting, during which time Johnson fell asleep. Hurd hence had to use photographs of Johnson to finish the painting. Johnson did not like his portrait, declaring it "the ugliest thing I ever saw." The painting is now part of the collection of theNational Portrait Gallery, in theSmithsonian Institution. Hurd'sTime Magazinecover portrait ofCharles C. Tillinghast, Jr.was featured in a National Portrait Gallery exhibit of the magazine's cover art that opened in 1969."
