JUST IN: William Robert Thrasher (1908 – 1997) Paintings

Born in Lamar County, Texas, in 1908, William Robert Thrasher was a farm boy. Because of his desire to paint, he spent all his earnings on brushes and canvas. He observed and painted the life he knew: wildlife, farm scenes, and the countryside.

The death of his father forced the sale of the farm and family possessions. The first items sold, and in the most demand, were Thrasher’s paintings. This encouraged his career as an artist.

His early works were painted on beaver board and masonite. Thrasher’s works are in private collections, state offices in Texas, various universities, and congressional offices in Washington, D.C.   

Sizes including frames are approximately:  7” x 10”, 8” x 12”, 10” x 12”, 10 ½” x 13", 13 ½” x16", 15” x 20".   Prices: $195, $225, $275, $325, $475, $475.
