The Fredericksburg Art Auction is honored to offer a select number of pieces from the collection of Ken Holm, Aurora, Colorado. Ken was a wonderful collector and supporter of the arts. His collection was amassed over the course of several decades and he was a “fixture” at many of the major art shows, events, and auctions all over the country. His support of Western art and artists will not soon be forgotten. Ken was a true lover of all things Western and everything to do with sports, hunting,

Russell week, which is held annually in Great Falls, Montana, was always at the top of his list of destinations. He also enjoyed Cheyenne Frontier Days (WY), The Prix de West (OK), the Loveland Sculpture Show (CO), the Colorado Sculpture Invitational, and the National Western Stock Show Art Show (CO), among others. The lots from Ken’s collection are spread throughout the sale and noted in the provenance line in the descriptions. We dedicate these to the memory of Ken; remembered always as a much-loved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, and art connoisseur.

In such instances, Fredericksburg Art Auction may implement the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer on behalf of the Consignor.

Neither Fredericksburg Art Auction, nor auctioneer, nor Consignor make any representations whatsoever that the purchaser of a work of art will acquire any reproduction rights thereto. 12.

From the early beginnings of the breed, Longhorns made their mark on the West, they adapted and evolved to eventually foster life in a new frontier as pioneers in a hard, wild land. While seeming to subsist on air and scenery they became America’s original livestock. With strength, vitality and a special nobility, they spawned a culture. They called forth a breed of men that shaped the American cowboy and ranch life. They became a part of our Western heritage as they carried the dreams of westward expansion in to a new era.

Don Crowley (b. 1926) Don Crowley pursued a twenty-one year career as a commercial artist in New York before moving permanently to Tucson, Arizona in 1974. He was born in Redlands, California and, after graduating from high school, served two years in the Merchant Marines and two years in the US Navy. Following his military service, Crowley attended the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California, where he met his wife, Betty Jane, a fellow artist. Crowley worked at the legendary Cooper Studios for seven years, and then pursued freelance illustration until 1973. Crowley moved to Tucson in 1974. His models were often members of the San Carlos Indian Reservation in eastern Arizona and eventually,

almost exclusively, a family of Paiutes, the Martineaus, from the Kaibab Plateau region of northern Arizona. Crowley is a member of the “Tucson 7,” an informal group of artists who all began their careers in commercial art and illustration and have made the successful transition to Western fine art. In 1994, he was elected a member of the Cowboy Artists of America where he  has been awarded numerous awards for his oil paintings and drawings. “This is a calling,” Crowley says. “It’s very fortunate to know what you want out of life. It’s the searching and doing of it that’s important. The gift is having the goal.” Credit: Cowboy Artists of America FREDERICKSBURG ART AUCTION

61 WILLIAM ROBINSON LEIGH (1866-1955) Zuni Girl Oil on canvas mounted on board 16.5 x 13 inches Signed lower right: ‘W R Leigh’

Provenance: Private Collection, Texas

$30,000 - $50,000

William Robinson Leigh (1866-1955) William Robinson Leigh is best known for his portrayal of the Southwestern United States and its inhabitants, especially the native people of the Zuni, Hopi and Navajo tribes. Although W.R. Leigh was born in West Virginia, his mother’s ancestral line included the Native American Princess, Pocahontas. Leigh’s knowledge of this tie led him to deeply empathize with Native Americans and later prompted him to depict their lives and stories on canvas. In 1906, Leigh made his first trip to the Southwest. To fund his train fare westward, Leigh struck a deal with the Santa Fe Railroad to paint images of the Grand Canyon for their advertising campaign. After their completion, Leigh traveled to Arizona, 34

M AY 2 , 2 0 1 5

the Dakotas, and eventually Wyoming. In 1912, Leigh was first introduced to the Navajo Nation and to its people and way of life. Leigh instantly connected with the celebration of the land and all that it offered its inhabitants. He was invited to witness ceremonial dances and rituals of the Navajo. This connection with the lifestyles of the Native American people of the Southwest gives Leigh’s pieces a poignancy and accuracy that few other artists of his genre possess. Leigh’s combination of bold color and the subdued shades of the Southwest earned him the title “Sagebrush Rembrandt”. Today, Leigh’s paintings can be seen at the Gilcrease Museum, Huntington Museum, Buffalo Bill Historical Center, the Amon Carter Museum, and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame.

This lot includes the captivating bronze sculpture “River Crossing” by Bob Kuhn along with four original drawings that Kuhn created as he was developing the sculpture. Bob Kuhn (1920-2007) was arguably the finest painter of wildlife art in recent times; however, he also used his great talent to create a handful of wonderful sculptures. Kuhn said, “For a long period of time, I thought I ought to be able to do a bronze. I paint in a three dimensional way and have some knowledge of animal anatomy,” and with the help of his friend, sculptor George Northup, Kuhn tried his hand in the field of sculpture. Northup helped Kuhn with creating the armature and showing him the mechanics behind working with clay. Bob Kuhn took it from there and created “River Crossing”, a dynamic sculpture that was immediately displayed and honored at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Kuhn was so grateful for Northup’s assistance in the creative process that he insisted George sign the piece as well and it is inscribed ‘Northup’ along with Kuhn’s signature. The Fredericksburg Art Auction is honored to offer the #1 casting within the edition along with four original signed studies.

“Maternal love is one of the most powerful and endearing bonds in all of human emotion and shared in every family of man, including the fiercely protective women of the American Indian tribes. Following the birth of a child, the Blackfoot mother would use a traditional cradleboard to carry and protect the infant during its first crucial year. This was the custom of all Plains Indian peoples and varied only in the shape or design of the cradle. As protective talismans and good luck charms, small beaded pouches were crafted into stylized little animals believed to possess long life. A pouch in the form of a snake was for a boy child and a lizard form was for girls. These attractive pouches, known as umbilical cord amulets, were kept attached to the cradleboard.” Credit: the artist’s book ‘Native Trails, Fresh Tracks’, pages: 124-125

Mian Situ (b. 1953) Born in Southern China, Mian Situ received his formal art training in his native homeland of Guangdong, formerly Canton. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the prestigious Guangzhou Institute of Fine Art. After instructing for six years, he earned a Masters in Fine Art. Immigrating to Canada, then later moving to the United States, Mr. Situ’s paintings clearly reflect his upbringing in the rural countryside of his native China. His artistic diversification of subject matter, from the people of the small villages and farming communities going about their daily lives to the exquisite portraitures as well as his most recent works inspired by western historical themes and American landscapes, all reflect the sensitive dedication of this Master Artist.

Mr. Situ’s artistic debut in the United States was meteoric. The first painting he entered in The Oil Painters of America in 1995 won Best of Show as well as the People’s Choice Award. The awards were a foreshadowing of what would prove to be a remarkable career noted by his artistic merit and the response  of collectors. In 2002, Situ’s work was selected for the 2002 Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage show in which he won the Masters of the American West Award, Thomas Moran Memorial Award, and Patrons’ Choice Award. Since 2002, Mr. Situ has won fifteen awards at The Autry Museum including three Artist Choice awards. Situ has an unprecedented number of paintings that have been purchased for the Museum’s permanent collection. No other living artist has three paintings in the Autry Museum’s permanent collection.

“Pacific Mail Steamer, Siberia 1905 Hong Kong - San Francisco” is a major painting that embodies the elements of the very best of Mian Situ. With his adept brushwork, exquisite compositions and uncanny ability to translate light, Situ is able to capture a moment in time with emotional integrity. The Mail Steamer, Siberia, made 11 crossings from Hong Kong to San Francisco; over half of the ship’s crew was Chinese workers. By 1905, Chinese women and children were no longer allowed to emigrate. Thousands of Chinese entered the country with a dedication to hard work and the opportunity to improve their lives and the lives of their family. Indeed, the men pictured in this eloquent painting are attempting to fulfill the American Dream. Many became laborers, building railroads and mining for gold. Their legacy lives on today and their story is forever preserved in this historically important painting by Mian Situ.

“Water and reflections...a frequent re-occurring theme in my work, they fascinate me and provide the basis for some bold images, especially when zebras are involved. Technically reflections are very demanding as they are very specific, they are not just a mirror image of the subject it is more like the subject is standing on a mirror, reflecting more of the underbelly, etc. With my irrepressible desire to be accurate I spend a lot of time working these things out. With this piece the impala was needed to add a focal point to the piece and a color contrast, normally you do not see this in the wild very often, other than at Etosha Pan National Park in Namibia, where the water holes attract high concentrations of animals in a small area and you do get this type of interaction. It is one of my favorite spots and my visits there provided inspiration for this piece. The final touch is provided by the Blacksmith Plovers, the great thing about birds is that they can be placed anywhere to balance the compositional elements.” – Lindsay Scott

$35,000 - $55,000 Provenance: The artist

William Acheff (b. 1947) William Acheff brilliantly captures the illusory qualities and lifelike perfection that is demanded in a classic trompe l’oeil painting. His realistic compositions often reflect the distinctive influences of Native American cultures and of the Southwest, where he makes his home. From an early age, Acheff had an interest in painting. Though he studied art in high school, he never dreamed of becoming a painter. It was not until several years later, that Acheff had the opportunity to meet the Italian artist, Roberto Lupetti. The Italian awakened Acheff’s interest in art once again. He soon began an intense European-style apprenticeship with Lupetti, spending five days a week for six months studying with the Italian master. Acheff’s lifelong interest became a passion. In 1973, Acheff moved to Taos, New Mexico, to separate himself from the influences of his teacher. It was 54

M AY 2 , 2 0 1 5

in Taos that Acheff found his niche. Acheff, who is of Alaskan Athabascan heritage, has a special affinity for the historical and cultural artifacts that he chooses to paint. The appealing forms and designs of the Indian pots and artifacts are intertwined with Acheff’s preference for painting textures from nature. The vintage photographs that often appear in Acheff’s compositions help the artist set a mood. Each article in relation to the others becomes integral to the composition as a whole. The results are mesmerizing works of striking beauty. His paintings have won the recognition and praise of his peers, critics and collectors alike. In 1989 and again in 2004, Acheff was awarded the Prix De West at The National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center in Oklahoma City. His exceptional paintings are included in prominent private and public collections throughout the United States. Credit: AskArt.com

Ken Carlson (b. 1937) Considered by many to be one of the most exceptional wildlife painters of our time, Ken Carlson’s portrayal of the beloved whitetail deer of the “Texas Brush Country” is an example of why his work is so highly regarded. Carlson says his interest in natural subjects began early in his Minnesota childhood and has continued with total dedication to learning and painting nature. While Carlson lived in Minnesota and then in California, he spent more than three decades as a free-lance illustrator. During that time, every free moment was spent painting, studying, sketching and photographing wildlife subjects. He was able to build a reputation through participation in fundraising for conservation organizations such as Ducks Unlimited. Desire to paint representational art pushed him toward a full-time career as a wildlife artist. Carlson cites 1969 as a turning point in his career. 56

M AY 2 , 2 0 1 5

He presented six large game paintings at a major conservation foundation conference and not one sold. He observed that tight renderings of bird illustrations did sell and from that idea, he compiled a portfolio of fifty portraits, later published by MacMillan in a book titled ‘Birds of Western North America’. In 2001 Carlson was the recipient of the inaugural Major General and Mrs. Don Pittman wildlife award for exceptional artistic merit for wildlife painting at the Prix de West Exhibition, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. At the 1999 Prix de West Exhibition, Carlson was the winner of the prestigious Frederic Remington Award for Artistic Merit. He was awarded the ”Distinguished Wildlife Artist” at the 1996 Wildlife Exhibit at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin. Credit: Masterpiece Online

He went on safaris in the German and English colonial territories in South and East Africa in 1905 and 1911-12. In 1906, he toured India and Ceylon. On these expeditions, he sketched and made field notes as a basis for his art, which he later executed in his studio in Berlin. Not only a painter, but also a hunter, Kuhnert traveled to Africa to capture its wild animals in the flesh and on the canvas. In between Kuhnert’s extended visits to Africa, he returned to Germany where he continued his wildlife studies, traveling throughout Europe in pursuit of indigenous species including the red stag, elk, bison, wild boar, and moose. It is estimated that Kuhnert’s body of work totaled over 5,000 paintings. Today, there are less than a thousand known works in existence. The remainder of his artwork was destroyed or lost in World War II. Kuhnert died while traveling in Switzerland in 1926, leaving a legacy of extraordinary wildlife paintings behind.

“Landscape is my love and is always a challenge, spiritually and emotionally. The variety and vastness of it can sometimes be overwhelming. Simplification is the answer. Less Is More. The last light of the day or daybreak interests me more than other times of the day. I also love gray cloudy days. Trying to capture the spirit and emotion of what is happening before my eyes is the greatest challenge. I want the viewer to feel the physicality and emotional essence of the subject matter of the painting.” – Nancy Bush

Charles M. Russell (1864-1926) Considered by many to be the premier artist of the American West, Charles Russell was no armchair cowboy. Not interested in school, he left home for Helena, Montana at the suggestion of his father, who paid his son’s way after Charlie turned 16. His father thought that rough and tough realities of the West would shake romantic notions of it out of the boy’s head. But instead, Russell fell totally in love with the environment, getting a job as a night wrangler and having his days free for observation and painting. He spent seven years working at cowboy jobs and carried his watercolors in his bedroll. In 1887, he spent the winter with the Blood Indians in Canada. He became very sensitive to the plight of Indians and respectful of their ways. In 1888, ‘Harper’s Weekly’ published one of his cowboy paintings and he spent that winter among the Blackfeet Indians of Alberta. He studied their language and ceremonies, and the Chief tried unsuccessfully to get Russell to take an

Indian wife. In 1890, a folio of fourteen of his paintings was published, but it was not until 1896, that he pursued art as a serious career. That year he married Nancy Cooper and settled in Great Falls, Montana. Devoting her life to furthering his career, Nancy Cooper Russell persuaded him to set up a studio and do commissions. Russell was a masterful painter, and each of his paintings told a great story. His paintings of men and wild animals, pitted against tough life in the West sold widely to celebrities, oil-rich collectors, and numerous others who liked reminders of the “Wild West.” Russell began to sell his paintings at good prices and together he and Nancy began to enjoy the rewards of fame. He died in Great Falls, Montana on October 24, 1926 of heart failure.

Martin Grelle

(b. 1954)

Martin Grelle was born and raised in Clifton, Texas, and still lives on a small ranch a few miles from town. His studio sits in the picturesque Meridian Creek Valley, surrounded by the oak and cedar-covered hills of Bosque County, just a short distance from his home, but also within a few miles of the family and friends who are so important in his life. Grelle began drawing and painting when he was very young, and was fortunate to have James Boren and Melvin Warren, two professional artists

and members of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, move to the area when he was still in high school which had a lasting impact on his direction and career. Mentored by Boren, Grelle had his first one-man show at a local gallery within a year of graduating from high school in 1973. In the nearly forty years since that time, Grelle has produced some thirty one-man exhibitions, and has won awards of both regional and national importance at shows around the country.

125 “I paint the American spirit: people from an era when we had to be strong to survive. The advance of the American frontier, from the Alleghenies to the Pacific, forged not only the geographical boundaries of this country but our national character as well. Life was played out at the cutting edge of civilization. For all the trials they had to endure, daily moments and memories of family life on the frontier are not so distant that they do not resonate with and inspire us today.” – Morgan Weistling The night’s camp site has been selected and work has begun on the evening’s meal.

(1859-1953)

Joseph Henry Sharp is widely considered to have been the “Spiritual Father” of the Taos Society of Artists. He was the first painter in the group to visit New Mexico and he left behind a vast cultural record of Native American life, landscapes, and portraiture. Sharp’s first trip to the West was in 1883 at age 24. He visited pueblos in New Mexico (though not Taos), and then took a boat up the West Coast and disembarked in the Washington Territory. In the northwest he encountered numerous native tribes, and the sketches he completed on that trip would be the basis for his first Native American portraits.

Roosevelt took an interest in Sharp’s work. Roosevelt had the Indian Commission build and furnish a cabin and studio for Sharp at Little Big Horn. While working in Montana, Sharp began amassing a huge personal collection of Native American artifacts and costume. It was important to him that these things be preserved and understood, and that he was closely connected to and had a thorough understanding of his subject matter. He made sure that he got to know all of his portrait subjects personally. In this way he was as much an anthropologist as a painter.

Sharp married in 1892, and finally visited Taos for the first time in 1893, on a commission from ‘Harper’s Weekly’. He was captivated by the then unspoiled life of the natives in Taos. The pictures he completed for the commission were very well received, and led to further illustration work with numerous publications. In spite of this success, Sharp did not go back to the pueblos of New Mexico right away. He taught in Cincinnati, worked as an illustrator, and spent time in Montana, camping on the battlefield of Little Big Horn, becoming acquainted with and painting portraits of Plains Indians. In 1900, an exhibition of these portraits would travel to Paris and to Washington D.C., and would prove to be a turning point in his career. The Smithsonian Institution purchased 11 portraits, and President

In 1912, Sharp relocated to Taos permanently, and was a charter member of the Taos Society of Artists. Sharp threw himself into recording the environment and life of the pueblo. One of his favorite subjects was that of Hunting Son, and the painting featured in the Fredericksburg Art Auction shows Sharp at his best, capturing the essence of his subject and his surroundings. He left behind an unparalleled visual record of the Native American. Hardly is there a painter who could strive for more. But Sharp achieved something else: he was one of the West’s most important historians, and America owes him a debt for it.

“Inspired by the song ‘Amarillo by Morning’, I wanted this painting to portray the life of a cowboy trying to make a living as a rodeo bull rider. I found these boots and spurs that perfectly capture the hard, rugged lifestyle these cowboys live.” – Kyle Polzin

Provenance: Private Collection, Arizona

Kyle Polzin

(b. 1974)

Kyle Polzin grew up in South Texas, and began developing his artistic skills at a young age under the guidance of his father. Brought up around horses and the Gulf coast, Polzin grew to appreciate the beauty and heritage of his Texas surroundings which is reflected in his art. He worked closely with his grandfathers who were both skilled carpenters, and through their teachings, learned the value of craftsmanship and the reward of creating with your hands. In 1992 Polzin began his formal training in fine art at Victoria College with emphasis in oil painting. During this time, he participated in instructional sessions under Dalhart Windberg, whose work has influenced him since boyhood. After college Polzin worked as a graphic 88

artist and web designer while painting in his free time. As his popularity and success as a painter grew, he switched to painting full time in 2000. Polzin received the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award at the 2013 Prix de West in Oklahoma City, and the Don B.

Clyde Aspevig

(b. 1951)

“Clyde Aspevig is arguably the greatest American landscape painter of our time. In my various careers as an art dealer, an art historian, a college level art history instructor and a museum director specializing in American landscapes, I have seen a great number of American landscape paintings. In my short list of the very best contemporary landscape painters, Clyde Aspevig is at the top.” Jean Stern, Executive Director, The Irvine Museum. For Clyde Aspevig, painting expresses human emotion better than any other medium. The divine nature of light reveals to the receptive eye the timeless interaction of land forms and

sky, water, flora, soil and rock. If he has any “mission” beyond the canvas in his creative endeavors, it is simply a wish to call attention to the timeless, intrinsic worth of our natural environment. The image resolves from a deliberative yet intuitive process of the artist, seeing. Nature, undistorted by the filters of acculturation. Clyde’s intent is to create something beautiful and harmonic. While subject matter is of prime consideration, further contemplation of the painting eventually yields its subtle nuances of texture and rhythm. His paintings possess qualities meant to outlast the viewer’s initial infatuation, qualities that will endure well into succeeding generations. Credit: artist’s website FREDERICKSBURG ART AUCTION

O.C. Seltzer

(1877-1957)

O.C. Seltzer came to Montana during the final days of Indian wars and outlaws, and he spent the latter part of his life documenting them in watercolors and oils. The majority of Seltzer’s subjects included cowboys, Native Americans, homesteaders, miners, ministers and barmaids. Seltzer was known for spending copious amounts of time researching his subject matter to make sure his paintings contained authentic detail and accurate historical facts. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1877, Seltzer and his mother came to Great Falls

in 1892 to join her family after his father died. He worked for local “horse outfits” until 1893, when he got a job as a machinist in the Great Northern Railway shops in Great Falls. He worked similar jobs for almost 30 years, painting and sketching in his spare time. Seltzer was a close friend of cowboy artist Charles M. Russell and that was surely a factor in his decision to paint full time in 1921. Seltzer gained critical acclaim throughout his career. His legacy is that his work is highly sought after for its artistic merit and the historical accuracy that he strove to attain. FREDERICKSBURG ART AUCTION

“This painting was developed around a central theme highlighting symbols that reflect both the softer and the hardworking role of the female in the life of the Indian tribe. The women were responsible for much of the day-to-day necessities that allowed the men to hunt for food. The packing and other efforts required for the tribe to move quickly, as their food supply dictated, fell to the women. Seen in the back of the painting is a typical suitcase, as we would refer to it in modern terms, made of rawhide and folded up like an envelope. The cradle board, hand-made doll, and other symbols also reflect the even more important role of the Indian female, bringing the next hunter or gatherer into the tribe. All this work while she is awaiting her beloved.” – Kyle Polzin

Berninghaus was a sketch artist for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad to depict landscape of Colorado and New Mexico. In 1912, he joined the founding members of the Taos Society of Artists, whose goal was to promote sales of their work in Taos and other markets. In 1919, he bought an old adobe house near Taos overlooking the town and in 1925 settled there permanently. He did some painting in surrounding states including Phoenix, Arizona in 1931, where he painted a five lunette mural at the Post Office building of the opening of the west. His style was one of short, quick brush strokes, which gave his work a unique texture. Early in his career, he painted on site, but later from memory, which was described as being extremely accurate. One of the reasons he was committed to the Taos Art Colony was that he believed it was a distinctly American art, something definitive of subject matter unique to this country. He depicted Indians in a realistic, un-romanticized way, going about their lives as they actually did in twentieth-century New Mexico. Credit: AskArt.com

Warren’s fascination with cowboy life, and his desire to become an artist, were constants in his youth.

He had ample opportunity to watch cowboys in many different situations and was familiar with all their customary chores. He first brought the two interests together while living on a ranch in Seymour, Texas. After seeing an ad for a course from the Federal Art School, he performed odd jobs to earn enough money to take the course. From then on, his life direction was set. By the early 1960’s, Warren had

achieved enough success selling his paintings in galleries to leave the commercial art field. He joined the Cowboy Artists of America in 1968 and won the group’s Memorial Award in his very first exhibition with them. Skilled as both a painter and sculptor, Warren specialized in depicting scenes of the heroic West. His early experiences of ranch life informed his artwork throughout his career. Many of his paintings were used to tell the history of early Texas in the books ‘Frontier Forts of Texas’ and ‘Trails of the Southwest’. President Lyndon Baines Johnson was one of the most avid collectors of Warren’s work. Credit: Cowboy Artists of America website

Z.S. Liang

(b. 1953)

Z. S. Liang was born in China and raised in a family of artists. 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 in 1982. He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and 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 the outdoor

Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This newfound 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 ensuing 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. Credit: artist’s website FREDERICKSBURG ART AUCTION

Ace Powell

(1912-1978)

Asa L. Powell was born in New Mexico in 1912 and lived near Kalispell, Montana, until his death on January 25, 1978. His father was a stable boss and guide in Glacier National Park. At the age of ten, “Ace” was a working wrangler. He went to high school in Browning and attended Montana State University. As a boy, Powell had watched Charles Russell paint in Bull’s Head Lodge in Apgar. In 1938, after a few private art lessons, Powell became a self-taught artist, sketching and painting what he knew best, the cowboy and the Indian with their horses in the region around Glacier Park. The following is quoted from an article that 112

appeared in ‘Art West Magazine’, Spring 1978, entitled “Don’t Shake Hands With The Devil, Or He’ll Pull You Into Hell” by Van Kirke Nelson. “Ace said this of himself, that I have ‘been more fortunate than most, helped and have been helped, painted some great paintings and some terrible paintings. There were times when I thought the price I was charging was close to larceny -- so I have never regretted someone else making a dollar on my paintings as I’ll get it back from them next time. I’ve shaken hands with the devil -- perhaps more than most, but the good Lord has seen fit to keep me around for a bit longer.’”

“I am and always have been a landscape painter, but after hundreds of excursions painting in the field, I have encountered such beautiful wildlife that they often have literally walked into my paintings. In these recent works, the animal does not dominate as in many wildlife paintings, but are shown in their natural environment. It is where they belong. They act so naturally and gracefully in their environment and in many cases they do not even know that I am there. I have observed this so many times, that I have recently challenged myself with capturing their beauty, as well as the beauty of the landscape that they live in. Every great painting has a concept or story, and the minute you include an element like a barn, road or animal the viewer can participate and fill in their version of the story from their own experience.” – Jay Moore

“The Posse”, a term most often associated with the American Old West, also known as “The Sheriff’s Posse”, refers to civilians who were deputized for a limited time in order to accompany the sheriff in apprehending fugitives and outlaws throughout the isolated frontier. The posses of the Old West were made up mostly of a group of “hard-ridin’ men”; men that were quick on a horse and could handle a gun. Faced with trying to restore order in the sprawling West, some bands of men bent on justice became something more, such as a group of forty cattlemen who met under an oak tree in Graham, Texas, in 1877, to try and solve the problem of cattle rustling. Those ranchers became the founders of what would become the Texas & South Western Cattle Raiser’s Association, which still exists today. This special group of rangers of the TSCRA, all commissioned law enforcement officers, investigate agriculture crimes. One of those crimes is still referred to as “cattle rustling” even today in Texas and Oklahoma...

The moment in the early sixties when Bill Anton first saw the Rocky Mountains, he vowed to return to the expansive western landscape. Exposed to art early and often, Anton drew constantly from the time he was old enough to hold a pencil. Inevitably, his two great loves in life united when he turned to western art full-time in 1982. Since 1982, Anton’s work has remained in high demand as collectors continue to clamor for the next great painting from

Bill Anton. Invited to exhibit in the country’s premiere shows, Anton has also met with significant critical acclaim including the Autry Museum’s Masters of the American West Show, ‘Purchase Award’, 2012 and the ‘Spirit of the West Award’ 2011, 2010 and 2009, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum’s Prix de West, ‘Great American Cowboy Award’, 2009 and 2011.

“Indians believe life moves in circles. I return to a love of horses and the native people who lived their lives on horse back. I paint Indians not just because they are picturesque, but because they are living symbols, that express the thoughts of free men and animals moving through a natural world. They are real, serious, and honest people looking for a connection between God and their own nature and the beautiful landscape around them.” – Roy Andersen

One knows when they are looking a painting by Roy Andersen. The confident strokes, the magnificent use of color and the carefully executed composition all point to a work created by a living master. Roy Andersen studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the Art Center School in Los Angeles. He achieved distinction in the crowded world of illustration art; producing work for such prestigious periodicals as ‘National Geographic’, ‘Sports Illustrated’ and ‘Time’. He also executed 132

Bill Owen

(1942-2013)

Bill Owen was born in 1942 in Gila Bend, Arizona to a mother who was an artist and a father who had been a cowboy throughout the early 1900s. These influences shaped his desire to be an artist and cultivated his interest in the cowboy lifestyle. Having inherited the God-given talent, it was only natural he would strive to become an artist who chronicled the lives and works of the contemporary cowboy. Bill exhibited at the Whitney Museum in Cody, Wyoming, the Grand Palais in Paris, France, and the Western Art Show in Beijing, China. In 1993, Bill became a member and staff artist of Rancheros Visitadores and, that year, was awarded the “Frederic Remington Award

for Artistic Merit” by The Cowboy Hall Of Fame. In 1996, the prestigious Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma honored Bill as their Rendezvous Artist and at the 2003 Prix De West Invitational Exhibition and Sale he became the first recipient of Express Ranches “Great American Cowboy Award”. Inducted into the Cowboy Artists Of America in 1973, Bill served as CA President three times and earned numerous medals and awards at the annual show. Two awards that were especially meaningful to Bill are the CA award and the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association Award for “Best Portrayal of a Cowboy Subject”.

220 VERYL GOODNIGHT (b. 1947) Sprite, 2004 Bronze #11/21 65 x 72 x 24 inches Signed: ‘Veryl Goodnight 2004’ $15,000 - $25,000 Provenance: Private Collection, Texas

One of the world’s leading equine sculptors, Veryl Goodnight has said of her work, “I was born loving animals and the American West, [and] this has been the focus of my art for decades.” As a child growing up in the 1950s near Denver, Goodnight dreamed about having her own horse, a yearning she translated into horse drawings and sculptures out of snow. Today, an entire menagerie - not merely horses but bison, deer, elk, goats, sheep, coyotes, and bears - live on her property near Santa Fe and serve as live models. Goodnight possesses the uncanny ability to render animal personalities such as this exuberant colt, “Sprite”, as well as the communion between animals and people. Her equine bronzes grace numerous public institutions, including The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City and The Old West Museum in Cheyenne. “The Day the Wall Came Down”, her most celebrated piece, depicts five horses jumping over the ruins of the Berlin Wall; one casting resides at the George Bush Presidential Library and the other at The Allied Museum in Berlin.

Clark Hulings

(1922-2011)

Clark Hulings was born in Florida in 1922, and was raised in New Jersey. Over his lifetime he resided in New York, Louisiana, and throughout Europe before settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1972. His art training began as a teenager and continued at The Art Students League with Frank Reilly. Hulings initially pursued a career as a portraitist in Louisiana, followed by freelance illustration in New York working on paperback book covers. By the early 1960s, Hulings devoted himself to easel paintings. In 1965 he debuted in New York, N.Y., at The Grand Central Art Galleries. In 1973 he was the first recipient of the Prix de West Award at the National Academy of Western Art and in 1976 he was the subject of a solo exhibition at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center, Oklahoma City, OK, that was documented in the book ‘Hulings—A Collection of Oil Paintings’ (Lowell Press). This was followed in 1978 by a retrospective at the Museum of the Southwest, Midland, TX, and a 1981 exhibition at the C.M. Russell Museum, Great Falls, MT. As one of the leading American realist painters, Hulings traveled the world looking for rural and urban landscapes and genre scenes to become the subjects of paintings reflecting 144

the vibrancy of the human spirit. He searched for beauty in places where others might only find misery. In the world of street people he saw compassion and self-respect. In urban alleyways he envisioned sunlit corridors of family activity. Among rustic farmers he discovered people whose lives were synchronized with cycles of the seasons and the animals they care for. Hulings ability to see timeless beauty in momentary human gestures and activities won him the appellation “master” on numerous occasions. His celebration of textures as expressed through light, shadow, and atmosphere was explained as “describing air itself.” His modesty in the face of such acclaim was legendary. His affection for donkeys was a trademark, with the animal’s quiet demeanor becoming a metaphor of human patience and perseverance. Hulings was the recipient of numerous awards from organizations including The Allied Artists of America, The Salmagundi Club and The Hudson Valley Art Association. In his adopted state, Hulings was recognized with shows at the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe. In 1985, the museum installed a Hulings plaque on its artist walk of fame; and in 2004, he received the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. Credit: The Archives of AskArt.com


225 SCOTT CHRISTENSEN (b. 1962) June on the Marsh, 2008 Oil 22 x 30 inches Signed lower right: ‘Christensen ©’; verso: signed and titled by artist $12,500 - $25,000 Provenance: Private Collection, Texas

Scott Christensen

(b. 1962)

Given that he rarely picked up an artist’s brush until his college years, some would say Scott Christensen came to the canvas late. Yet, in a sense, art was with him all along. One of his strongest memories of his Wyoming boyhood is visits with his grandfather, who, having been injured in a farm accident and confined to a wheelchair, gave himself over to painting. “What I remember best in that house,” Scott says, “is the smell of paint.” Christensen’s work embodies both tradition and innovation. His singular vision is deeply informed by the masters. He has studied Isaac Levitan, Alphonse Mucha, and Joaquin Sorolla, among others, as well as Anders Zorn, whose luminous work inspired Christensen to adopt a similarly limited palette. Christensen’s work has been exhibited in many prestigious museums and shows throughout the country, including the National Academy

of Western Art; the Prix de West Invitational at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City; the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming; the Denver Art Museum; the Salmagundi Club in New York; the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center of the American West; and the Salon d’ Arts at the Colorado History Museum. “June in the Marsh” is an eloquent example of Christensen’s painterly approach that captures the emotion of a singular sublime moment in time. Indeed, if the painting resonates with you then Christensen would agree that he has succeeded as a conduit of nature’s true expression.
