Painter Eloise Mcgill, 1868-1939, was born in Independence, Texas. She was a direct descendant of President James Knox Polk, and a grandniece of Judge R. E. B. Baylor, the founder of Baylor University, in Waco, Texas. She studied in San Antonio with Robert Jenkins Onderdonk, and in New York City with William Merritt Chase. She also studied landscape painting at the Cape Cod School of Art, in Massachusetts, and with Robert Reid in Paris, France.

From 1888 through the late 1920s, McGill participated in the Edgar B. Davis Competition at the Witte Art Museum, in San Antonio. She later started her own art school, naming it the Edgar B. Davis School of Wildflower Painting.

Born in Independence, Texas, Eloise Polk McGill became a noted landscape and portrait painter of Texas in the impressionist style. She is especially noted for her bluebonnet landscapes of the Texas Hill Country.

After her studies, she continued to paint, teach and exhibit her works. She exhibited extensively, beginning in 1888 at the age of 20. She exhibited a canvas in San Antonio’s first art exhibit in 1894 and later in the late 1920’s she exhibited several canvases at the prestigious Edgar B.
