Ask any native Fort Worthian about famous local artists and it won’t take long before they mention The Brothers Gentling. Twins Stuart and Scott Gentling moved to Fort Worth, TX at the age of five, and showed a masterful understanding of art almost immediately.
Their most famous contribution is a collection of bird paintings called, Of Birds and Texas. This 46-pound folio was inspired by John James Audubon’s, Birds of America, which consisted of over 400 hand-colored illustrations of the birds in the United States in the early 1800s.
Both brothers have passed away — Stuart in 2006 and Scott in 2011. Their Fort Worth home has sat vacant for a number of years and now will be listed for sale as well as an estate sale will take place at the property from Nov. 9 – 11.
