    Cecil Casebier (1922 - 1996)

    Cecil Casebier was a Texas artist born
    March 22, 1922 in Fort Stockton, and died April 19, 1996 in San Antonio.
    He was known for portrait and still-life paintings and murals, mosaics,
    and stain-glass designs including 18 stained glass windows for St.
    Luke's Episcopal Church in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from the
    University of Southern California, and did graduate work at the
    University of Texas. He served as Faculty Chairman of the Art Center,
    San Antonio, Texas.

    Of his work, Casebier said: "I am searching
    naively for truth; for a personal aesthetic truth, for the truth of
    beauty, enigmatic as it may be."
