WILLIAM ACHEFF (1947– ) William Acheff’s art passion was kindled while living in the San Francisco Bay Area when, at age 22, artist Roberto

Lupetti invited him to his drawing class. After six months, Acheff moved into his own studio while continuing visits to Lupetti’s studio for criticism and words of wisdom. Restless, Acheff ventured to Taos in 1973. Armed with classical training, he developed a very distinct style that is widely recognized and admired. He is renowned for his highly realistic still lifes of rich Native American artifacts of the past. The Pueblo Indians of Taos have provided him with inspiring subjects to paint. “Artifacts and traditions of the past,” he explains, “seem to hold more mystical and aesthetic value than those of contemporary times.” Acheff has shown in major Western art shows, including: Western Heritage Sale, Artists of America, National Academy of Western Art, The Hubbard Show, Prix de West, Autry Masters of the American West. He is a two time Prix de West Award winner (1989, 2004) and received the Masters of America West Purchase Award in 1998.

JOHN BANOVICH (1964– ) John Banovich emerged as a talent to watch over two decades ago and today is known internationally for his large,

dramatic portrayals of iconic wildlife. His deep passion, knowledge of wildlife and unwavering commitment to conservation continues to inspire. Banovich’s work is in important museum, corporate and private collections and has appeared in numerous prestigious venues including the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, National Museum of Wildlife Art, Wildlife Experience Art Museum, Salmagundi Club, Museum of the Southwest, Natural History Museum, Gilcrease Museum, traveling exhibitions sponsored by the Society of Animal Artists and showcases hosted by Safari Club International and Dallas Safari Club. In the press, Banovich’s work has been showcased on NBC’s Entertainment Tonight, The Outdoor Channel, The Great American Country Channel, Orion Entertainment, Versus, PBS and most recently NBC has written about his dedication to his conservation work and named him an NBC Cause Celebrity.

KEN CARLSON (1937– ) Ken Carlson was born and raised in Minnesota and now resides in the hill country of central Texas. Following art school training,

he began his career as a commercial illustrator in Minneapolis. In 1968, he put aside commercial work to devote full time to painting wildlife subjects. A critical element of Carlson’s work has always been first-hand observation of his wildlife subjects. Each fall, he travels to Alaska, the western prairies, the Canadian Rockies, or to Africa to study animal subjects in their varied habitat. As a participant of the Prix de West Exhibition at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Carlson has been the recipient of the Frederick Remington Award for Artistic Merit and twice the recipient of the Pittman Wildlife Award. He was the recipient of the first Bob Kuhn Wildlife Award from the American West Exhibition at the Autry National Center and the Briscoe Western Art Museum Legacy Award for a lifetime of artistic accomplishments.


GUY COHELEACH (1933– ) Guy Coheleach’s paintings have been in 40 one-man retrospective exhibitions in major museums in 29 cities from New York

to Los Angeles from 1991 to 2011. With over a hundred one-man commercial shows worldwide his paintings have received the Society of Animal Artists Award of Excellence an extraordinary eight times and it’s lifetime achievement award in 2012. Visiting Heads of State have received his American Eagle print, and he was the first Western artist to exhibit in Peking after World War II. Coheleach became a charter member of The World Wildlife Fund’s “The 1001: A Nature Trust” in 1972. His endowment at the University of Tennessee provides about six full scholarships to the School of Wildlife Management each year. Coheleach graduated from Cooper Union and received an Honorary Doctorate from William and Mary. PBS featured him and his work in Africa entitled “Journeys Of An Artist”. He was also the subject of two films “Guy Coheleach and the Bald Eagle” and “Quest: An Artist and His Prey”; and been the focus of articles in Reader’s Digest, Saturday Evening Post, well as numerous regional art and wildlife magazines. “The Big Cats: The Paintings of Guy Coheleach” by Abrams was a Book of the Month Club selection in 1982. His highly acclaimed book “The African Lion as Man-Eater” was published in 2004.

JENNESS CORTEZ (1944– ) Jenness Cortez is a distinguished figure in the contemporary revival of classical realist painting. She was born in Indiana,

received private lessons from noted Dutch-born painter Antonius Raemaekers, graduated from the Herron School of Art where she received a rigorous five year training in all technical aspects of art making, and studied at the Art Students League under another gifted teacher, Arnold Blanch. From 1977 to 1996 Jenness became world renown for her skillful portrayal of sporting and wildlife subjects. In 2001 she began concentrating on a form of still life painting inspired by the age-old tradition of “art in art.” By means of her intricate creations Cortez challenges the viewers’ intellectual curiosity as she celebrates the sheer pleasure of beautiful painting. In the process of creating each work Cortez plays author, architect, visual journalist, art historian, curator and pundit to help open our eyes to what we might otherwise have overlooked or taken for granted. Each painting presents a specific theme, mixing straightforward cues and obscure allusions, complemented by references to other artists’ lives and times. By depicting iconic artworks in her own paintings, Cortez underscores a classic paradox of realism: the painting as a “window” into an imagined space and as a physical object––both a metaphysical presence and a material entity. Jenness Cortez has been exhibiting her work since 1975, and has had more than 40 solo shows throughout the United States. Her work is in numerous public and private collections including those of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, the New York State Museum.

Z.S. LIANG (1953– ) Z. S. Liang was born in China in 1953. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and Guangzhou Academy of Fine

Arts in Guangzhou. Liang furthered his art study in the United States, he earned his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989. Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at Massachusetts. This new found interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures and their traditional ways of life. During the ensuring years of field research, he has made many connections and friends among native tribes from the east coast to the west coast. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals. Among the many awards Liang has received are: Masters of the American West Purchase Award 2011; the David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award, Master of the American West, 2009; the President’s Award for Excellence, Oil Painters of America, 2005.

BONNIE MARRIS (1951– ) While a student at Michigan State University, Bonnie Marris illustrated several books, including a mammalogy text by a leading

expert in the field. The book attracted the attention of noted zoologist George Schaller, who invited Marris to prepare the art for posters to support his worldwide rare animal relief programs. Beyond acadmic training and emotional involvement, there lies that element for which there is no substitute: experience. Marris makes several field trips each year to study the animals that are the subjects of her paintings. This close proximity with the animals gives her the confidence to paint them with total realism in their natural surroundings. Marris’ work is highly sought after and can be found in many major collections throughout the country. Marris and her husband, Woody, live on a farm in Ada, Michigan with two dogs and three horses.

MIAN SITU (1953– ) Born in southern China, Mian Situ earned BA and MFA degrees from the Guangzhou Institute of Fine Art and then worked as an art

instructor for six years. He lived in Canada for ten years before immigrating to the United States in 1998.

Situ received the Masters of the American West Purchase Award for Convergence of Cultures, given in recognition of the work acquired for the Autry National Center’s permanent collection, at the 2009 Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. He won the Gene Autry Memorial Award, sponsored by Jay H. Grodin, at the 2012, 2008, 2009, and 2010 Masters. He was given the David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award and the Artists’ Choice Award at the 2006 Masters, the Artists’ Choice Award at the 2005 Masters, and the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Painting and the Patrons’ Choice Award at the 2004 Masters. In 2003, he received three Masters awards: the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Painting, the Artists’ Choice Award, and the Patrons’ Choice Award. At the 2002 Masters, his painting Powder Monkeys won the Masters of the American West Purchase Award; he also received the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Painting and the Patrons’ Choice Award. In 2000 his work won the first-place prize at the Carmel Art Festival and the Artists’ Choice Award for best painting at the 90th Gold Medal Exhibition of the California Art Club. He has also received numerous awards from the National Juried Exhibition of Oil Painters of America.

133 HOWARD TERPNING (1927- ) Good Medicine oil on canvas 18 x 24 inches signed lower left: © Terpning 1979 verso: titled and signed Howard Terpning’s realistic paintings are among the most sought after and acclaimed images ever produced of Native American traditions, customs, and history. In his masterfully created historical works, we see his deep dedication to the accurate, compassionate, and insightful depiction of Native American culture. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, he attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art. He worked in commercial art in Chicago before moving to New York City where he had a successful career as a commercial illustrator for magazines and movie posters. In 1977, Terpning moved to Tucson, Arizona to document Native American culture and the American West. Two years later, he was elected to the National Academy of Western Art as well the Cowboy Artists of America. Over the last four decades, Terpning’s remarkable career has been recognized with every top award in western art including countless Gold Medals from the Cowboy Artists of America, two Prix De West Purchase Awards from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Hubbard Award for Excellence and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Autry National Center of the American West. In Native American culture the concept of ‘Good Medicine’ refers to natural phenomena which lend holistic healing powers to the body. In Good Medicine, Terpning skillfully narrates the trials and tribulations of the Native American people as they’re challenged to meet their basic needs: finding water. In this dry, vast landscape they find their oasis. PROVENANCE: Christie’s, New York, NY, 1994 (label verso) From a Private Collection $100,000 - $150,000

The sprit world has opened and they have fallen into it. Whatever the inward journeys may have been to which those Shamans descended in their trances, the visions they had there guided and instructed the people. Through conversations with the buffalo master and spirits of ancestors, they were able to foresee the future fates, or ‘hoops’ of their nation and guide them in the great drama of the dance of life.” – Dan Mieduch PROVENANCE: The Artist $15,000 - $25,000

140 TOM LOVELL (1909-1997) Sundown at Fort Union, 1980 oil on canvas 23 7/8 x 36 1/8 inches signed lower right: TOM LOVELL CA © 1980 Born in 1909 in New York City, Tom Lovell developed an early interest in the American west and painting. Lovell attended Syracuse University, where he received his bachelor’s of Fine Arts in 1931. Lovell described this early passion, saying “I had been interested in the American Indian since I was nine years old...That interest never left me, although it was many years before I could really apply it to my work. When I moved West, it seemed all this interest and knowledge had come home to roost. While I had no great desire to be a cowboy, I knew the West was a lot more things than just cowboying. There are a lot of artists who know about the cowboy subject matter well, so they do that. I like the idea of going back in time, so that’s what I do.” (“Tom Lovell 5/25/88 Draft II”) In Sundown at Fort Union Lovell follows this concept, taking the viewer back in time. From 1828 to 1867, Fort Union was the site of more trade than any other post on the upper Missouri. A bustling hub of commerce and cultural exchange, over 25,000 buffalo robes and over $100,000 dollars of merchandise were traded and sold at Fort Union each year. Ideally located near the convergence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers, Fort Union also served as a home base for federal Indian agents. In 1867 the United States Army purchased the fort and dismantled it, using the building materials for projects in the West—in line with increasing westward expansion. In 1966 the National Parks Service purchased the site, beginning a period of excavation and research before eventually rebuilding the fort to resemble its state in 1851. Run for a time by the American Fur Company, Fort Union hosted many esteemed guests during its heyday. Among those visitors were Prince Maximilian of Wied, and iconic artists John James Audubon, George Catlin and Karl Bodmer. Lovell likely used the historic first-hand accounts of those artists as source material for this painting; still in existence today is a print by Karl Bodmer, showing the wooden gates and towers of Fort Union, much as they appear in Sundown at Fort Union. With his interest in history painting, Lovell depicted many iconic forts during his career. Unlike many of those works, this painting evokes a sense of harmony and amicable relations. The open gates, and easy company of the Native Americans, mountain men, and traders speak to the success and peace that surrounded this fort. The soft glow of sundown depicted through the gates mitigates the harshness of winter, and further speaks to the prosperity and plenty that the fort provided—even during this, the harshest of seasons.

Liang “The Elkwater Lake region near the border between Canada and the U.S. once was the favorite buffalo hunting ground for the Blackfeet and other Plain Indian tribes. The Kootenay Indians on the west side of the Rockies wanted to come over to hunt buffalo in this region as well. Usually they sent dance messengers with gifts to the Blackfeet tribes and then they were allowed to hunt together. In the spring of 1864, the Kootenay Indians got the news that the Blackfeet were hunting in a different region, so they no longer sought permission. About three hundred Kootenay men traveled into the Elkwater Lake region and accidentally bumped into a much larger group of Blackfeet hunters. A fight broke out and soon became a full scale battle. In the battle, a Kootenay holy man named Raven rode right into the Blackfeet line shaking his holy rattle and singing his war song. The Blackfeet warriors kept shooting him from all directions yet he remained unscathed. His brave act shocked the enemy and his holy rattle was believed to have had superior spiritual power. At the end of the day, both sides called off the fight. Amazingly, both sides claimed their casualties in single digits. During the winter of 1864 to 1865, both tribes agreed to keep peace. Six years ago, after I learned of this incident, I traveled to Elkwater Lake for a field study and started the preparation for this painting.” – Z.S. Liang PROVENANCE: The Artist $80,000 - $120,000

One thing I had read was that when a man was going to court a certain girl, he would go to where she was living and he would dress in his finest stuff, and her parents would wrap a blanket or robe around them. They could then lift the blanket high over their heads so they could talk privately. He would usually present a gift. Here, in this case, the gift is a beaded knife sheath. The suitors would line up to do this, and sometimes there were many of them. This is a very symbolic and interesting scene.” – Martin Grelle PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Alpine, NJ $100,000 - $150,000

The subject is so attractive that it is difficult not to attempt such a work. Wolves speak to our imaginations. Jack London, author of The Call of the Wild, is partly responsible for my fascination with wolves in the north. I’ve also read stories from Scandinavia and Russia about these wonderful animals. The fact that the wolf (Canis lupus) once lived almost everywhere in the north hemisphere makes it a very special animal. Learning about the long distances they travel and their refined technique of hunting in a group has only increased by respect for them. Although there are many different color phases among wolves-from white to black - I used their most general livery in my painting. As for the setting, I am an amateur cross-country skier, so there is also an element in the work of my love for the beauty of a snowy landscape in weak sunlight. On the right side of the painting I wanted to give the impression of an opening in the snow-covered pine trees so that the wolves, after watching me, could silently disappear that way.” – Carl Brenders PROVENANCE: Trailside Galleries, Jackson, WY (label verso) From a Private Collection LITERATURE: Carl Brenders, Pride of Place: the Art of Carl Brenders, Langford Press, Langtoft, Peterborough, United Kingdom, 2007, illus. p. 144 Wildlife: Robert Morton,Wildlife: The Nature Paintings of Carl Brenders, Mill Pond Press, Inc., Venice, Florida, 1994, illus. p. 32-33 EXHIBITED: Society of Animal Artists, Rochester Museum and Science Center, Rochester, NY, 1988.

151 G. HARVEY (1933- ) The Hope of the Confederacy oil on canvas 36 x 48 inches signed lower left: G. Harvey ___© verso: titled, signed, dated During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s G. Harvey painted approximately a dozen major civil war pieces. Four of these, including The Hope of the Confederacy, were unveiled and exhibited at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., on October 3, 1991. Upon learning that a crucial collection of Civil War records housed at the National Archives needed funding, Harvey created this series of works and donated the proceeds of the print sales back to the National Archives for the preservation and restoration of those endangered Civil War documents. While researching this Civil War series, Harvey had access to rare Civil War image and document collections. He drew invaluable source material from the photographs of Matthew Brady, Timothy O’Sullivan and others, but it proved to be the personal correspondence of the Generals and soldiers that truly inspired him. With his own ancestors embattled in the conflict, Harvey treated the subject from a pensive and sentimental position—rather than glorifying the climactic or violent moments of battle. As Harvey himself said, “Even when I did a series about the Civil War, I was more interested in depicting the quiet moments, the thoughtful moments, the times when a soldier pauses to think about home.” The Hope of the Confederacy holds true to this more thoughtful pattern. As General Robert E. Lee rides directly out at the viewer, flanked by his men, the title reminds us of the burden placed upon his shoulders. The hopes of his soldiers, their families, and the nation they wish to become all ride with Lee. Alone in the wilderness, the figures speak for themselves; stripped of the banners and festivities of triumph or the chaos and horror of battle—simply men, the heart and soul of the war.

162 G. HARVEY (1933- ) Jeb Stuart’s Return oil on canvas 30 x 42 inches signed lower right: G. Harvey __© 1988 verso: titled, signed, dated James Ewell Brown Stuart, better known as ‘Jeb’ for the initials of his three given names, stands as one of the most important Confederate cavalrymen of the Civil War. Born in 1833 in Virginia, Stuart played an integral role in the first real conflicts of the war, which played out in Kansas and Missouri during Bleeding Kansas. In fact, Stuart carried Robert E. Lee’s orders to Harper’s Ferry during John Brown’s raid, where he began to truly make a name for himself. Following Virginia’s secession from the Union in 1861, Stuart resigned from his post in the United States Army to fight for the Confederacy. Quickly rising through the ranks, Stuart lead the Army of Northern Virginia’s cavalry in numerous battles, including, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg. In addition to his work as a commander, Stuart served as a key collector of military intelligence, executing successful raids that provided Lee with vital information. Stuart also circumvented the Union forces multiple times, bolstering the spirits of the South and making him a symbol of Confederate heroism and hope. Stuart’s rakish appearance solidified his place in the hearts of the South, known for his ostrich plumed hat, red-lined cape, yellow sash, and cavalier demeanor. In Jeb Stuart’s Return G. Harvey depicts Stuart among his men but also set apart. Stuart rides out in front, alone, marked by his iconic hat and red lined cloak; he commands both his cavalry and the viewer’s attention. Whether returning from battle, or from a raid, Stuart’s return brings with it hope and the promise of greater victory and glory. Consistent in his treatment of Civil War subjects, Harvey focuses here on a reflective, more personal moment, rather than the battle itself.

173 ARNOLD FRIBERG (1913-2010) Expert Criticism oil on canvas 32 x 25 inches signed lower left: © A FRIBERG RSA verso: titled and signed While unusual within the canon of western art, paintings of the Royal Mounted Canadian Police, or Mounties, make up a significant portion of Arnold Friberg’s body of work. Friberg created nearly three hundred images of RCMP over a thirty-three year period, beginning in 1937 when his connection to the RCMP began. After studying at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, Friberg moved to the publishing hub of New York City to further his professional career. Continuing his education, Friberg took night classes at the Grand Central School of Art, where he studied under the iconic illustrator Harvey Dunn. As a child Friberg submitted drawings and cartoons to local newspapers, in high school he worked as a sign painter, and in New York he became a professional illustrator when he began working for the Northwest Paper Company. A Minnesota company, the Northwest Paper Company entered the Great Depression desperate, like everyone, to survive. To make it through those stark times, they needed a new marketing strategy that would inspire confidence—the answer; smartly clad, strong jawed, wholesome Canadian Mounties. Friberg, the most prolific of the sixteen artists enlisted, proved to be the perfect artist for the job. Renowned for his storytelling ability, as seen in his academy award nominated set and costume designs for Cecile B. DeMille’s major motion picture The Ten Commandments, Friberg brought personality and relatability to his RCMP scenes. Friberg also possessed a distinct skill for depicting horses—something that earned him the prestigious commissions for equestrian portraits of both Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II. Expert Criticism serves as an exemplary example of Friberg’s oil paintings created for the Northwest Paper Company’s RCMP advertising campaigns. Friberg’s three hundred images of Mounties depict them in nearly every situation from the predictable scenes of scouting, rescue, and mapping to the more humorous images of dancing, snowman building, and even performing a marriage. In Expert Criticism Friberg maintains the integrity of the company’s message through his treatment of the officer. The Mountie’s uniform is immaculate, and juxtaposed with the slouching mountain man, his posture and stature mark him as the most important figure in the image. Set against the pristine Canadian Rockies, Friberg celebrates the purity of the landscape, the officer, and even the act of painting itself. In 1973 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police made Friberg an honorary member of the force, as recognition for his extensive illustrative work in their honor.

184 ALBERT BIERSTADT (1830-1902) Wind River Country Wyoming, ca. 1860 oil on canvas 28 1/4 x 39 1/2 inches signed lower left: ABierstadt Unlike so many celebrated artists, Albert Bierstadt saw great financial success and critical acclaim during his lifetime. Born in Soligen, Germany, in 1830 Bierstadt immigrated to the United States as a toddler; settling with his family in New Bedford, Massachusetts. In 1853 Bierstadt returned to Germany to pursue his formal artistic training at the Royal Academy in Dusseldorf, studying alongside Worthington Whittredge, Emmanuel Leutze, and Carl Wimar. Upon returning to the United States in 1857, Bierstadt painted the mountain ranges of the East Coast, developing his skill as a landscape painter. Renowned for his paintings of the American west, Bierstadt first traveled west in 1859 as part of Frederick Lander’s road building crew. Like John Mix Stanley had done for Isaac Stevens’ expedition, Bierstadt served to provide a visual record of the journey and to depict the grandeur of the West. Enchanted by the Rockies, Bierstadt developed a keen interest in Wyoming’s branch of them, known as the Wind River Range. The largest mountain range in Wyoming, the Winds are home to towering peaks, indomitable glaciers, and some of the wildest country in the territory. In Wind River Country, Wyoming Bierstadt clearly expresses his love and admiration of the region as well as artistic ability. A remarkable example of Bierstadt’s luminism, the canvas all but glows; suffused in a warm golden light. A pair of antelope pauses in the foreground, gazing out across the landscape before continuing to graze or darting away. A common trope in Bierstadt’s work, these small figures in the foreground—in concert with the articulated tree line on the right side—serve to magnify the vast expanse of the midground and background. Looking further into the painting, rolling hills give way to a meandering river—the sun’s last rays glinting off its slow wide turns. Finally, the eye is drawn back to the soaring peaks of the Wind River Range, breaking through a golden fog to punctuate the cloudless skyline. Unpopulated, untouched, untainted, the Winds are shown here in their pristine primal beauty; embodying the freedom, expansion, and American pride that marked the late nineteenth-century. Throughout his time in Wyoming, Bierstadt sketched, photographed, and meticulously recorded his surroundings. Returning to the East Coast, he created numerous large scale paintings of the region. Major paintings like this masterwork of the Wind River Range are currently in the collections of the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and The Whitney Gallery of Western Art.

187 E. MARTIN HENNINGS (1886-1956) Untitled oil on canvas 18 1/2 x 15 1/4 inches unsigned verso: letter of authentication from Helen Hennings Born in 1886, in Pennsgrove, New Jersey, E. Martin Hennings moved to Chicago with his family a few years later. After growing up in the city, Hennings developed an interest in art and attended the Art Institute of Chicago, where he graduated with multiple awards, recognitions, and scholarships—his career off to a promising start. After a few years of working as a commercial artist, Hennings entered the Prix de Rome, coming in second. With a renewed determination to pursue a career as a fine artist, Hennings traveled to Germany where he studied at the Royal Academy in Munich. While there, he joined the American Artists Club where he met future co-members of the Taos Society of Artists Walter Ufer and Victor Higgins. The onset of World War I cut Hennings’ stay in Germany short, and he returned to Chicago. In 1917 prominent art collector Carter H. Harrison took notice of Hennings’ work and offered to sponsor him on a trip to Taos, New Mexico, in exchange for a few paintings. New Mexico proved to be a strong muse for Hennings; the light, landscape, and Pueblo Indians all inspired him to new artistic heights. In 1921 Hennings moved permanently to Taos, where he became a member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1924. Hennings split his time between Taos, Chicago, and Houston for the remainder of his career. Speaking about his love for New Mexico, Hennings said, “I constantly grew more enthusiastic over the West for I was impressed with the possibilities for landscape and figure composition. New Mexico has almost made a landscape painter out of me, although I believe my strongest work is in figures.” 1 Known for his portraits, Hennings’ self-proclaimed skill for figural work has stood the test of time—as this portrait shows. Intimately cropped, the Native American man’s bust fills the composition, appearing to extended beyond the confines of the frame. In his quintessential art nouveau style, Hennings uses light and line to illuminate the figure, highlighting his face and the folds of his shirt. With the man’s eyes downcast, cigarette in hand, Hennings captures a contemplative moment, and yet he invites the viewer in to this private space through his expert style and framing.

193 BOB KUHN (1920-2007) Cheetahs on a Termite Hill acrylic on masonite 22 x 40 inches signed mid right: Kuhn verso: titled and signed Bob Kuhn was born in 1920 in Buffalo, New York. Enamored with wildlife as a child, Kuhn frequented the Buffalo Zoo, studying and sketching the creatures. Kuhn received his formal artistic training at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where he studied design, anatomy, and life-drawing. For the following thirty years, Kuhn enjoyed a living as one of the most successful wildlife illustrators in America, with corporate clients including Field and Stream and Outdoor Life. Beginning in 1970, he focused exclusively on easel painting, working in acrylic. Kuhn traveled the globe to find inspiration, with many of his wildlife expeditions lasting as long as eight weeks. He made countless trips to Africa, several trips to Alaska, and numerous journeys through Canada and the American West. He drew inspiration from wildlife greats Bruno Liljefors, Carl Rungius, and Wilhelm Kuhnert, and mentored aspiring wildlife artists. While Kuhn was well known for his dramatic depictions of animals in action, this rare portrait of cheetahs at rest captures the species in their native habitat beautifully. The lean, fit cheetahs are restful yet alert. Africa served as a powerful source of inspiration to Kuhn, and big cats were amongst his most beloved subjects to paint.

Lawes “Africa is a continent of many textures with an abundance of beauty for an artist to explore. I have always been attracted to the ‘Big Cats’ as they represent both power and beauty like the land they inhabit. This is a painting that reflects what we hope Africa will always represent, wild, free and unblemished. I have captured this regal male lion on top of a rock outcrop, known as a kopje, surveying the land he dominates, like a king on his throne. I tried to exemplify both the beauty of the landscape with the physical attractiveness of this dominant apex predator in the hope to glorify his place as, ‘Master of His Domain’.” – Bruce Lawes PROVENANCE: The Artist $20,000 - $30,000

195 STEVE BURGESS (1960- ) African Queen, 2015 oil on board 24 x 36 inches signed lower right: Steve Burgess “During my many visits to Africa I have been fortunate to see leopards in their natural habitat on numerous occasions. The leopard is an unmatched predator and the perfect example of feline power and grace, to see a leopard moving through the African bush, or lying motionless in the high branches of a tree, is a riveting experience, and one I have tried to convey in this painting. No other member of the cat family can look as relaxed in a tree as a leopard, casually draped over a branch with all it’s languid grace a leopard simultaneously keeps cool, relaxes and watches for potential prey. For an artist the leopard is at the same time a joy and a challenge to paint, each rosette on the cats fur must be painted correctly as they describe the shape of the animal, a sleek dappled predator, the ultimate cat.” – Steve Burgess PROVENANCE: The Artist $12,000 - $18,000

Africa is a land with a unique narrative of great depth, complexity, and richness; far from making me complacent, my lifelong immersion in its mysteries have taught me that I could paint every day for the rest of my career and never tell the entire story. I have lived and worked in Kenya off and on my whole life, still spending time there nearly every year, and that has made me uniquely qualified to share an intimate knowledge of African wildlife that goes far beyond that of the casual traveler. In my paintings I always attempt to do more than just open a window on a visual experience I’ve had, but to launch the viewers imagination with as real a representation of texture, temperature, behavior and form as possible, to communicate a veracity that only comes from frequent daily observation. That technical accuracy is coupled with a poeticism that is the natural result of a helpless affection for the place of my birth, a place that will no doubt continue to inspire me to bring the story of its charismatic wildlife, awesome landscapes, and noble people to canvas for the rest of my life.” – Guy Combes PROVENANCE: The Artist

209 CARL RUNGIUS (1869-1959) Grizzly Bear oil on canvas 30 x 40 inches signed lower right: C Rungius Carl Rungius was born in Rixdorf, Germany, in 1869. Rungius developed an early interest in studying and hunting wild animals, influenced by his father and grandfather, both amateur naturalists and taxidermists. At a young age Rungius showed an aptitude for drawing, and consequently pursued formal artistic training at the Berlin Art School, the Academy of Fine Arts, and the School of Applied Arts. Following his education, Rungius began his career as a romantic painter in Germany. In 1894 Rungius’ uncle invited him to travel to rural Maine for a hunting expedition. This trip sparked Rungius’ passion for big game hunting and painting, and for exploring the diverse wildlife of North America. The following summer, spent hunting in Wyoming, proved pivotal for Rungius, and in 1897 he made a permanent move to New York. Rungius’ studio in New York City was the perfect entrée to the budding art scene, and he escaped frequently to the wilderness of the Northeast and Canadian Rockies. In 1904 Rungius travelled the Yukon with Charles Sheldon, and in 1910 he journeyed to Banff, Alberta for the first time. Banff proved to be an incredible source of inspiration for Rungius, and he built a studio there in 1921, nicknamed ‘The Paintbox.’ Rungius’ work remained in high demand throughout his career, with notable patrons including Theodore Roosevelt. In Grizzly Bear Rungius explores one of his favorite subjects, a solitary grizzly bear, roaming high in a dramatic, rugged mountain landscape. Rungius was known for his skilled depictions of fur, and the sun visibly glints off the bear’s expertly articulated coat. Behind this monarch of the mountains, the sun illuminates the craggy peaks in a glorious alpine glow.

216 ROBERT BATEMAN (1930- ) Great Cormorants acrylic on canvas 26 x 60 inches signed lower right: Robert Bateman 2000 © An influential painter and naturalist, Robert Bateman was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1930. Interested in both art and wildlife from an early age, Bateman knew by twelve that both would serve to be his life’s passions. As a teenager Bateman became a Junior Naturalist at the Royal Ontario Museum, where he gained vital exposure to ornithology, field study, and specimen drawing. At eighteen Bateman won a Junior League scholarship for art tuition, which allowed him study with Gordon Payne at the Arts and Letters Club for two years. Bateman attended the University of Toronto and received an honors degree in geography in 1954. While in school, he took night classes in art from Carl Schaefer, whom he studied under for five years. Throughout this period Bateman participated in numerous geological surveys in Newfoundland and Canada’s Arctic, where he continued to sketch wildlife and collect specimens. Having already traveled across the United States and much of Western Europe, Bateman embarked on a fourteen month expedition around the world in 1957. With one friend and a Land Rover, he journeyed across equatorial Africa, northern India, through the Himalayas into Myanmar, Thailand and India before culminating in Australia. In 1963 Bateman moved to Nigeria to teach for two years, where he entered a Nairobi art competition. Until this point Bateman’s love of art and wildlife had remained separate, but the paintings of African animals that he submitted combined his two passions cohesively for the first time. Upon returning to Canada, Bateman continued painting and quickly gained a following in the art world. In 1976 Bateman stopped teaching to devote all of his time to painting, and after his first solo exhibition sold out opening night, it proved a wise career move. In Great Cormorants, Bateman’s skill as a painter and his decades of experience as a naturalist combine to create an authentic and stirring portrait of these expert fishermen.

Mosby at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Under Mosby’s tutelage Schmid focused his studies on the old masters, and developed his hallmark style, “alla prima”, referring to the completion of a painting in a single session. Schmid has enjoyed a long and illustrious career, and his work resides in several significant permanent collections, including The Smithsonian. He has been honored with countless awards including the John Singer Sargent Medal for Lifetime Achievement and the American Watercolor Gold Medal. Schmid is also a devoted educator and has published several widely distributed books. Schmid is best known for his elegant depictions of quiet, everyday moments. In Olympic House, he captures a simple, bucolic scene at a family home in rural Washington state. The laundry on the clothesline lend gentle humanity to the scene, and the three small figures invite contemplation from the viewer.

249 PINO D’ANGELICO (1939-2010) Coffee in the Kitchen oil on canvas 50 x 42 inches signed lower left: pino Born in 1939, Pino D’Angelico grew up in Bari, Italy. He began his artistic training at the Art Institute in Bari. Despite his early interest in art, Pino’s parents did not support his artistic dreams. Undeterred, he fled to Milan at the age of eighteen to study at the Academy of Brera. During his studies Pino found inspiration in the PreRaphaelites and Macchiaioli, and also perfected his technique for painting nudes. Seeking more artistic freedom and opportunity, Pino immigrated to the United States in 1979. He then began an extensive career as an illustrator, working for Dell, Bantam, Harlequin, Penguin, and Simon & Schuster. During his career as an illustrator, Pino produced illustrations for over 3,000 books, movie posters, and magazines. After two decades of lucrative success as an illustrator, Pino returned his focus to the canvas. Representative of his oeuvre, Coffee in the Kitchen focuses on a quiet domestic moment. Known for his contemplative depictions of women, Pino utilized his impressionistic style and soft palette to lend a realistic sensitivity to his work.

253 WILSON HURLEY (1924-2008) Tierra Encantada, 1967 oil on board 32 x 48 inches signed lower left: Wilson Hurley dated lower right: 1967 Born in 1924 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Wilson Hurley moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his family in 1935. While still in his teens, Hurley studied with Theodore Van Solen, Josef Bakos, and John Young-Hunter. After high school, Hurley enrolled at West Point, where he studied engineering. Following graduation, he served in the air force, before deciding to attend law school at George Washington University. Truly a renaissance man, Hurley continued to pursue painting throughout his various careers. In 1952 Hurley returned to New Mexico and became an established lawyer, before turning to painting fulltime in 1965. From 1968 to 1969 Hurley took a hiatus from his artistic career to serve in the Vietnam War. Drawn to the wide open expanses of the western landscape, Hurley is most renowned for his depictions of Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and the New Mexico landscape. Often compared to the foundational American landscape artists like Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Church, and Thomas Moran, Hurley was influential in promoting and developing the genre of twentieth-century American landscape painting. Representative of Hurley’s passion for New Mexico and his skill as a landscape painter, Tierra Encantada captures the vastness of the New Mexican landscape as well as the volatility of its weather. Hurley became a member of the National Academy of Western Art in 1972, and received numerous awards and recognitions throughout his illustrious career. His work is housed in many permanent collections including, the Denver Museum of Art, The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and The Eiteljorg Museum.

We had no running water, electricity or heat for three days—and we loved every minute of it. During that time, I couldn’t help but imagine how much more difficult that storm was for the wildlife in the area. Pronghorn are common in the Black Hills and contrary to their delicate physicality, they are incredibly tough animals. As bad as the storm was, once we were able to venture out, the scores of pronghorn we observed seemed to be taking it all in stride.” – Dustin Van Wechel PROVENANCE: The Artist $7,000 - $10,000

TERMS AND CONDITIONS The following Terms and Conditions of Sale constitute Jackson Hole Art Auction, LLC’s (“Jackson Hole Art Auction”) and its agents’ and consignors’ entire agreement with prospective bidders, bidders and purchasers relative to the property listed in this catalogue. These Terms and Conditions of Sale and all other contents of this catalog are subject to amendment during or before the sale. The property will be offered by the Jackson Hole Art Auction as agent for the consignors, unless the catalogue indicates otherwise. 1.

Jackson Hole Art Auction operates as an agent of the seller only. It is not responsible in the event any buyer or seller at the auction fails to live up to their respective agreements, including failure of the seller to deliver any property to buyers. The Jackson Hole Art Auction assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility beyond the limited warranty contained herein. a.

Except as set forth in paragraph 1(b) below, all property is sold “AS IS.” There are no representations or warranties that extend beyond these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All works shall be available for examination prior to the sale. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, and its agents and consignors, make no representations or warranties as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of the catalogue or description, including, but not limited to, the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, dates, exhibitions, literary or historical relevance of any property, and, no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Nor are there any representations and warranties, express or implied, as to whether the purchaser acquires any copyrights, including, but not limited to, any reproduction rights in any property. Contents of this catalogue are subject to change or supplementation before or during the sale, including the sale of any lot.

b.

The authenticity of the authorship attributed to the property as described in this catalogue is guaranteed to the limited extent as stated in this paragraph 1(b). i.

The authorship attributed to an item of property includes name of the artist and any reservations therewith stated, as, for example, “attributed to”, “in the school of ”, or “appears to have been signed by.” The Jackson Hole Art Auction makes no warranties whatsoever, express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalogue other than the authorship attributed to the property.

ii.

This guarantee is further limited as follows: The benefits of this guarantee are not assignable and shall be available only to the purchaser of record; this guarantee shall remain in force and be effective only if notice of rescission is given to the Jackson Hole Art Auction within three (3) years following the date of sale, provided the property is tendered to the Jackson Hole Art Auction in Jackson, Wyoming, in the same condition as the property was found at the time of sale; and that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid (the successful bid price, plus the buyer’s premium and applicable tax) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might be otherwise available, and that the Jackson Hole Art Auction and its agents and consignors shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages incurred or claimed.

iii.

In no event will the liability of the Jackson Hole Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, exceed the original purchase price actually paid.

2.

Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size, and whether or not it has been repaired or restored.

3.

A buyer’s premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price. If paying by cash or check, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 17% of the final bid price of each lot up to and including $500,000, 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, and 12% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges. The buyer’s premium is calculated separately for each lot. If paying by credit card, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 20% of the final bid price for each lot up to and including $500,000, 18% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, and 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges.

4.

The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to withdraw any property before or during the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal.

5.

Except as may be announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot, as numbered in the catalogue.

6.

The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser, subject to reserves. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion to determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, or to reoffer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Jackson Hole Art Auction’s sale record shall be final and conclusive. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, in its discretion, may execute orders or absentee bids as a convenience to clients who are not present at the auction; however, the Jackson Hole Art Auction is not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.

7.

If the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, determines that any bid is below the reserve of the article offered, he or she may reject the same and withdraw the article from sale, and, if having acknowledged an opening or other bid, the auctioneer decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient, he or she may reject the advance.

8.

On the fall of the auctioneer’s gavel, the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer assumes full risk and responsibility for the offered lot, subject to all of the terms and conditions set forth herein, and is immediately obligated to pay the full purchase price or such parts thereof as the Jackson Hole Art Auction may then require. All sales are final, and there shall be no exchanges or returns. Payment shall be made by cash, check, wire transfer, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. (See, paragraph 3 above: “If paying by credit card . . .”) In addition to other remedies available to us by law, the Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to impose, from the date of sale, a late charge of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) of the total purchase price, if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein.


9.

a.

All property must be removed by the purchaser at his or her expense not later than (10) business days following the sale, and if it is not so removed, (i) a handling charge of 1% of the total purchase price per month from the tenth day after the sale (until its removal) will be payable to us by the purchaser, with a minimum of 5% of the total purchase price due for any property not so removed within 60 days after the sale, and (ii) we may send the purchased property to a public warehouse for the account, at the risk and expense of the purchaser.

b.

If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with by the purchaser, the purchaser will be in default, and in addition to any and all other remedies available to the Jackson Hole Art Auction and its agents and consignors by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price, including all fees, charges, and expenses set forth herein, the Jackson Hole Art Auction, at its sole option, may (i) cancel the sale of that, or any other lot or lots sold to the defaulting purchaser, or (ii) resell the purchased property, whether at auction or by private sale, or (iii) effect any combination thereof. The purchaser will be liable for any deficiency, any and all costs, handling charges, late charges, expenses, and commissions of both sales, legal fees, and expenses, collection fees, and incidental damages. In addition, a defaulting purchaser will be deemed to have granted and assigned the property or money to the Jackson Hole Art Auction or its agents and consignors or any of their affiliated companies, and the Jackson Hole Art Auction may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due. The Jackson Hole Art Auction and its agents and consignors shall have all of the rights accorded to a secured party under the Wyoming Uniform Commercial Code. The purchaser of each lot agrees that each lot is unique and that the Jackson Hole Art Auction, in its sole discretion, shall not be required to sell or otherwise seek to mitigate damages should such purchaser fail to pay the total purchase price. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until the Jackson Hole Art Auction shall have collected good funds. The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to hold all purchases pending collection of the total purchase price.

All lots are subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price acceptable of the consignor. In such instances, the Jackson Hole Art Auction may implement the reserve by bidding on behalf of the consignor. In instances where the Jackson Hole Art Auction has an interest in the lot, it may bid up to the reserve to protect such interest. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, may also bid upon other property listed in this catalogue.

10. Jackson Hole Art Auction is the owner of images of each lot offered for sale and may use such images for its own archival purposes, as well as for advertising and publicity in connection with this or future sales by the Jackson Hole Art Auction. 11. Unless exempted by law, the purchaser will be required to pay all applicable state and local sales, gross receipts, and compensation tax. Proof of exemption in the form of a current Non-Taxable Transaction Certificate must be provided at registration. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to pay any applicable compensating use tax of another state on the total purchase price. 12. These Terms and Conditions of Sale, together with the parties’ respective rights and obligations hereunder, shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Wyoming, without regard to Wyoming rules concerning conflicts of law. 13. Prospective bidders and purchasers agree that, in the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to a sale of property, the party asserting such controversy or claim shall provide written notice thereof to the other party, and that any such controversy or claim not settled within fourteen (14) days of delivery of notice by the other party, including any controversy or claim arising from or relating to the sale, or to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, including the terms of this paragraph, shall be resolved and settled by binding arbitration in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or such other place upon which the parties may agree, in writing; such arbitration shall be pursuant to the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect; the award, which shall include costs of arbitration and an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party, shall be final, and the judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. 14. The Jackson Hole Art Auction may, in its discretion and at a purchaser’s request, package and ship items as directed by the purchaser. In such event, purchaser agrees to the following conditions: a.

All such packaging, handling and shipping is at the sole risk of the purchaser, and the Jackson Hole Art Auction shall have no liability for any loss or damage to such items.

b.
