"Bluebonnets San Antonio Texas 1941"

  • Details

    I have been in this business for many many years.  This is the only bluebonnet by Altheide that I have ever seen.  As a matter of fact I have only seen one other landscape.  His typical subjects were Mexican Jacals, The San Antonio River Walk, and Mexican Market scenes.
