Edward Mugge (Buck) Schiwetz
Edward Mugge "Buck" Schiwetz(1898-1994)
was born in Cuero, Texas to a banker father and artist mother.
Edward Schiwetz studied architecture under Joseph Kellogg at Texas A & MUniversity, but never practiced his profession. Instead he went to New York City, where he gained national recognition while working as a self-taught free-lance artist and studied for one year while in New York at the Art Students League. He returned to Texas and founded an advertising firm. In his line of work, he often did illustrations for companies such as Dow Chemical, Humble Oil and many others.
The Houston firm was a great success, which he later sold to a national firm and then moved to a ranch outside of Hunt, Texas high on a hilltop over looking the Guadalupe river.
Schiwetz hoped that his legacy would be to leave behind a collectionof work that would show Texas as it actually was.
Schiwetz exhibited extensively, from 1930 on, winning many awardsand honorable mentions, at such exhibits as The Art Institute of Chicago; American Watercolor Society; Philadelphia Watercolor Society; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Southern States Art League; Elizabeth Ney Museum; Witte Museum; Texas Centennial Exposition; Philbrook Art Museum; Laguna Gloria Art Museum; Dallas Museum of Fine Arts & many
He held solo shows at the Highland Park Society of Arts, Dallas, Texas; The Architectural League, New York; Elizabeth Ney Museum, Austin, TX; and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX.
