An Exhibition of 22 Paintings by OB Jacobson

December 5 – 18, 1948


 “After a summer free from towns and turmoil, I have returned to face the ‘daily bread.’ Again this summer I found the pine needles and the sage brush sweet and fragrant, the mesas and the sky secure in their places. I have come back convinced that life can be endured without the escape into abstractions. It may now be considered old fashioned but I seem to prefer to paint the world unconquered by man, unviolated by human greed, a world untouched by misery and despair. Every summer for 30 years or more, I have wandered over the south-western States attempting as best I may, by means of paint, to interpretate their dramatic beauty, not neglecting the lyrical melancholy charm of Oklahoma’s winters. This summer I concentrated on some aspects and moods of California, Utah, and Nevado. Pray look upon my effort with tolerance mixed with pleasure.”
