Taylor, Rolla Sims 1872-1970

Beginning in 1894 when he won his first prize, Taylor exhibited his work locally and nationally for the next 60 years. He painted in the colorful impressionist style with much influence from Jose Arpa's style of painting. His paintings of old buildings, river scenes and local missions are now of historical interest recording buildings and scenes that no longer exist in and around present day San Antonio. Many of these scenes are shown in "Art for History's Sake" by Steinfeldt.
