Philanthropist and eccentric oil wildcatter, Edgar B. Davis, worked with the San Antonio Art League to initiate a national art competition, offering substantial cash prizes. This Texas Wildflower Competitive Exhibition would go on to attract many prominent artists, and is credited with nurturing the state's emerging art community, as well as fueling a major regional movement. Some of the competition's best works are represented in this book, as well as commentary and historical perspective.
