Julian Onderdonk (1882-1922) a Texas Artist born in San Antonio, Texas was best known for his impressionist paintings of the bluebonnets of South Texas.
Onderdonk showed immediate talent in pencil drawing at the age of 16 first studying under his father Robert Jenkins Onderdonk (1852-1917) learning the basics of art. When 19, Julian moved to New York to study at the Arts Students League under Kenyon Cox and William Merritt Chase and additionally studied under Robert Henri & Frank Vincent DuMond.
While living in New York, Julian Onderdonk traveled to Dallas, Texas to help organize The State Fair of Texas Annual Exhibitions which he continued doing so for several years. In 1909 Julian returned home to San Antonio, Texas to paint the Hill Country scenes he so loved. Without a doubt, Julian Onderdonk mastered the Texas Landscape like no other artist before and after him. His last painting "Dawn in the Hills" was exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York.
