Additional Information

A private collection in Texas

Melvin Warren was born in California but grew up on ranches in Arizona and New Mexico, before moving with his family to Texas at age fourteen. Warren served in the Air Force during World War II and received a fine art degree from Texas Christian University upon his return. While his desire was to be a full-time easel painter and sculptor, he worked as an illustrator early in his career in order to support his family, while creating his own work at night. By the early 1960s, Warren achieved sufficient success as a fine artist that he was able to leave the commercial art field. Warren joined the Cowboy Artists of America in 1968 and won the Memorial Award in his first exhibition with the CAA. President Lyndon B. Johnson was an avid collector of Warren's work, as was former Texas Governor John Connally Jr.
