The Four Seasons by artist Robert Byron Tabor. Robert Byron Tabor (1882-1972) was born in Independence, Iowa, and lived in Independence and Oelwein. Working as a traveling salesman for a Cedar Rapids paint company, when he lost his job during the Great Depression, he began to paint at the age of 52. Desperate for work, he turned to the Public Works of Art Project. His submission became one of twenty-five best pictures of the 15,000 submitted. The painting, entitled Vendue, depicted an Iowa farm auction of the depression and hung in Franklin Roosevelt's White House office. Ironically, it later disappeared, never to be recovered. Tabor has shown artwork throughout the country, from the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska.
