Biographical Note

Born to Stephen G. Huddle and Nancy Foster in Wytheville, Virginia, William Henry Huddle (1847-1892) enlisted in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, serving under Nathan Bedford Forrest and Joseph Wheeler. Following the war, he lived briefly in Paris, Texas, before studying art in Virginia and at the National Academy of Design in New York City. In 1876, Huddle moved to Austin, where he worked as an artist painting historical and political subjects relating to Texas, including a portrait of David Crockett, the battle of San Jacinto, and Hood’s Texas Brigade. After studying art in Munich, Germany, from 1884 through 1885, he received a commission from the Texas Legislature to paint portraits of various Texas governors and presidents to be hung in the Capitol building. In 1889, Huddle married fellow artist Nannie Zenobia Carver, who worked as a painter and sculptor.
