Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Alexander Hogue was a painter, printmaker, and muralist known for his Dust Bowl series and early 20th-century depictions of Indian life in Taos, New Mexico. 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. His formal art education was at the College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, and he was a student of Texas artist Frank Reaugh. He was an illustrator and cartoonist for the Dallas Times-Herald, and in Texas did black and white lithographs of the oil fields. In Dallas, he lived at 912 Moreland Street. His works are included in the following museums: Musee National D'Art Moderen Pompidou Center Paris, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Harry Ranson Center University of Texas at Austin and the Art Museum of South Texas.
