Lauderdale was active during the same period of time as other notable Texas artists such as Charles Umlauf, who, like Lauderdal, was also a sculptor working in Texas in the early 1940s. While the extent of Ursula Lauderdale’s specific connections throughout the Texas art community as a whole are not incredibly clear, it is safe to say that the specific artistic ideas that she and her fellow Texas artists generated at the time percolated throughout the Texas art community and influenced Texas art and sculpture as a whole.
