About The Artist:

Velox Benjamin Ward was born in Texas in 1901. He was named after a German-made sewing machine. Ward moved frequently both as a child and as a married man and father to three children, trying to make ends meet. After his father, a farmer, died in 1918, Ward had a long string of menial jobs, as well as brief careers in preaching and professional wrestling. He did not really begin to paint until age 59, starting with portraits of his kids and then branching out to other subjects having to do with homesteads, farms and agricultural activities. Hanging some of his paintings in his shoe repair shop, customers began to take notice and eventually commission him to produce art. His big break came when a Dallas art gallery decided to represent him. The Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth gave him a one-man exhibition in 1972. It is estimated that Ward completed approximately 200 original works of art. He died in 1994, just shy of age 93.

The Museum of Modern Art, New York, possesses an impression of "The House My Daddy Built" in its permanent collection.
