Dot Hector (1904-1997)

Dot Hector was born in Lexington, Mississippi on August 16, 1904.  She studied art at the Cincinnati Art Academy and later at the University of Mississippi and Delta State University. She painted throughout her long career but became most active in the late 1950’s. She was in great demand for commissions to the end of her life. Her early works were often images of vanishing scenes of her much-loved Delta.  Her early work, the evocative portrayal of cabins of the Mississippi Delta, are treasured by those fortunate enough to own one her paintings. This is one of those early paintings and a fine image for those interested both this talented artist and the art of Mississippi.
