The Ruins of San Jose, 1875 by George Hallmark
"On March 19, 1768, the foundation for a new church just outside of present-day San Antonio was dedicated. Mission San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo was to become on of the most beautiful in the Southwest. After flourishing for several years, the mission began a gradual decline until Christmas Eve 1874, when the church's dome collapsed. The derelict church remained in this condition until the early 1900's, when local preservationists began a campaign to restore San Jose. After years of intensive labor, the mission is now part of the National Park Service."

About The Artist





Born and raised in north-central Texas, George Hallmark was an architectural designer and commercial artist before turning to easel painting. Voted the official Texas State Artist in 1988, his work hangs in many prestigious private and corporate collections, including those of Texas Instruments, the Medical Heritage Collection, the Texas Capitol, MBNA, and the Capitol in Washington, D.C. He is an honorary lifetime member of the New Mexico Military Institute Alumni Association.

Hallmark’s work has been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, and U.S. Art magazines. He is an annual participant in the Prix de West Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, and the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles. The artist also participates in the Eiteljorg Museum’s Quest for the West show in Indianapolis.

Hallmark has come full circle to his architectural roots. His love of the subject is prominent in his unique, painterly style in the delineation of stucco walls, tile roofs, and long shadows in his beautiful works. He is currently completing new paintings from recent trips to Mexico, France, Spain, and Italy.


The artist’s originals are represented by Nedra Matteucci Galleries, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas.  His work is reproduced by Somerset Fine Art in Fulshear, Texas.


"The longer I paint, the more I enjoy this wonderful blessing of creation. The good Lord gave me this incredible desire to be an artist; the rest has been just plain, hard work.”
