William Montgomery Description

 

 

WILLIAM MONTGOMERY (b. 1953)

 

William Montgomery is a painter and printmaker who lives near Elgin, just east of Austin. Born and raised in Tyler, he studied art at the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of New Mexico. While studying at the Academia de Belle Arti de Perugia in Italy, Montgomery developed an interest in classical European painting which had a major influence on his painting technique as well as his approach to subject matter. A life-long fascination with nature is a continuing influence and his current work explores animals in their environments, particularly their convergence with civilization.

Montgomery is also an accomplished printmaker. His twin interests in natural history and traditional etching techniques contribute to skilled and sometimes humorous prints, mainly of Texas and its residents. His scientifically-precise etchings of snakes have appeared on the covers of a number of important herpetology books.

Montgomery is currently working on a series of paintings about the Nueces River of Texas which will be part of a book that he is collaborating on with his wife, author and artist, Margie Crisp.
