Loren Norman Mozley
(Brookport, Illinois, 1905 - 1989, Austin, Texas)
Mozley spent much of his artistic career living and working in Taos, New Mexico, with artists like John Marin, Miguel Covarrubias, and Georgia O'Keeffe. He also traveled extensively throughout Mexico, South America, and Europe, and was heavily influenced by the technique of French Post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne.
Mozley helped establish the Art Department at The University of Texas at Austin. His nearly forty-year tenure (1938 - 1975) as professor and administrator at the University helped shape the character of the fine arts program which reflects his talents and wide range of interests.
