Description: William Tolliver (American/Louisiana, 1951-2000), "Watching the Sunset in the Fields", oil on board, signed lower left, 26 1/4 in. x 36 in., framed. Exh.: The Zigler Art Museum, Jennings, LA, Apr. 2009. Note: A native of Vicksburg, MS, William Tolliver's artistic career spanned most of his short life and took him from Mississippi to Lafayette, LA and finally to Atlanta GA. A self-taught artist, Tolliver studied and took inspiration from thousands of books on artists, particularly African art, the Cubists and Van Gogh, using them all as tools to create specific elements in his paintings. Tolliver's earliest works, such as the one offered here, are landscapes of his rural Mississippi home. As the artist later added figures, the people began to take the forefront in his themes. Tolliver's early skill with color and texture, as seen in "Watching the Sunset in the Fields" set him apart from other artists, developing along with his subject matter in a style he often referred to as "representational abstract expressionism."
