DALLAS, TX.- Paintings by early Texas Impressionists, such as Julian Onderdonk's Coreopsis, Near San Antonio, Texas, 1919, Dawson Dawson-Watson's Texas Cacti, and Porfirio Salinas's Texas Summer — each expected to realize $20,000+ — join iconic works of the American West, like Fred Darge's The Posse, Audley Dean Nichols's Indian Oasis, Arizona, 1919, and Frank Reaugh's Untitled (Herefords in a Landscape) in Heritage Auctions' May 11 Texas Art Signature® Auction in Dallas.

Additionally, the May 11 auction features works by contemporary Texas artists like James Surls and Ancel Nunn, including Look Out, 1993 and Chair on a Hook, 1986.
