In the early 1940s, a group of young, progressive artists in North Texas coalesced to create the Fort Worth Circle. It was composed of about a dozen talented friends, largely white and middle-class men and women, who were considered the pioneers of modern art in Fort Worth. 鈥淚n part, it鈥檚 hard to talk about their legacy because they worked in so many different styles, which in a way was part of their modernism,鈥 notes鈥Mark Thistlethwaite, emeritus professor of art history. However, the Circle artists helped lay the groundwork for individual expression and introduced variants of modernism that were new to both Fort Worth residents and local collectors. 鈥淏ut if they hadn鈥檛 existed, there virtually would have been no modern art in Fort Worth,鈥 said Thistlethwaite.
