Since the season is upon is, it seems like a good time to post Alexandre Hogue’s wonderful “Calligraphic Tornado” (1970), quite a departure from his more widely known Depression-era landscape paintings. I love this.

Image and text from Nature’s Forms/Nature’s Forces: The Art of Alexandre Hogue by Lea Rosson DeLong (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1984), p. 168. (This is a great monograph on the Dallas Nine artist, but it appears to be becoming difficult to find at affordable prices. There are a couple that should be scooped up quickly, here. It was issued only in softcover.)

A previous post from me on Hogue (one of my favorite artists) — with another uncharacteristic example of his work — is here.
