Today, we uploaded DeForrest Judd’s Big Bend, Hill Country, and Caddo Lake Sketchbook, comprising 124 pages of  images.

DeForrest H. Judd, a native of Hartsgrove, Ohio, lived most of his life in Dallas working as an artist and teaching at Southern Methodist University. Judd’s keen observation of everyday life and nature influenced him to paint, draw, and print his interpretations onto canvas, paper, and copper enamels. As a professional artist and teacher, Judd taught numerous students at SMU and at summer workshops in Arkansas, New Mexico, and Texas.

The DeForrest Judd art work and papers were donated to the Bywaters Special Collections in 1993 by his wife, Mrs. Mary Belle Judd. SMU’s Bywaters Special Collections are part of SMU’s Hamon Arts Library. A finding aid to the collection is available in the Texas Archival Resources Online.

Many of Judd’s other sketchbooks and additional works on paper can be found in the Texas Artists: Paintings, Sculpture, and Works on Paper digital collection.
