Lloyd Goff, a native of Dallas, Texas, was one of the first generation of "homegrown" Texas artists. He was a student of the newly formed Dallas Art Institute, studied at The Art Students League, New York, and for a period at the Academie Julian in Paris. Goff considered New Mexico his home and had studios in both Albuquerque and New York City. He was an established American painter and graphic artist whose work principally consisted of landscapes and still lifes. Goff was also well known for his works relating to cowboys and cowboy life, a theme he was passionate about.
