"She Loves Me...?"



A passel of plucked daisies litter the floor. Could it be they told a poor cowboy what he didn´t want to hear? He’s rounded up more, but most look a tad droopy, almost as if they know they’re bearers of bad news. Still the verdict ain’t in until you decide. Does he stand a chance with her? A Greenwich Workshop fine art giclée presented on watercolor stock with a deckled edge.

A Friendly Game At Rendezvous 183



“Great gatherings of trappers and Indians could go on for three or more weeks, during which they would exchange hides for trade goods to carry them through the winter,” explains Howard Terpning. “This rendezvous takes place at Pierre’s Hole (now known as the Teton Basin), which is identified by the hills in the background. Much of the men’s leisure time was spent playing in games of all sorts, with cards being one of their most popular pastimes. Showing both the gaming participants and their spectators enabled me to do studies of an assortment of characters. Although some of the natives may not have understood the game itself, they were undoubtedly drawn in by its excitement.” Any true Terpning collector will be drawn to this stunning large format MasterWork™ image. Deal yourself into this winning hand before it’s too late!

A Rough Start

Abandoned



Originally from Eastern Montana, the Crow Indians ranged far and wide by the 1870s. Parties of warriors would travel as far as the Rockies to raid rival tribes, hunt buffalo or chase off newly arrived settlers. This group of Crow inspects the remains of an unfinished, long-abandoned cabin they have encountered on one such journey. Such an intrusion would have been discovered on their own grounds long ago.

Ambush 1725 At Lovewell Pond



Artist John Buxton’s new Fine Art Edition depicts the calm before the storm of an American Indian surprise attack on militiamen. Captain John Lovewell of New England, a ranger and renowned scalp hunter, died on May 8, 1725 as he led a third expedition against the Abenaki Indians in an area now known as Fryeburg, Maine. A number of colonial militiamen and Abenaki Native Americans, including a notorious war chief named Paugus, also died in the engagement which marked the end of hostilities between the Abenaki and the white colonists in this part of the colonies.



More than 100 years later, the event was immortalized in a poem The Battle of Lovell's Pond, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of Paul Revere's Ride, and The Song of Hiawatha.



One of the verses reads:



The warriors that fought for their country, and bled,

Have sunk to their rest; the damp earth is their bed,

No stone tells the place where their ashes repose,

Nor points out the spot from the graves of their foes.



"I'm a historical artist. I don't claim to be a historian," said Buxton who is known for his painstaking research into every detail. He hired a Maine historian to help him explore the banks of what is now Lake Lovewell in Maine. They canoed the lake and saw the actual sites of Captain Lovewell’s exploits. Buxton noted the steep slope of the bank, the vegetation and fully imagined the scene that eventually took shape on his canvas. The original painting was commissioned by a direct descendant of Captain John Lovewell. Now you, too, can own a piece of this remarkable Colonial New England history.

Among The Spirits Of The Long-Ago People



You know a painting is special when it’s the piece in an exhibition that the collectors just stand in front of for a long period of time and simply don’t say word. And, they keep coming back to do it again and again. If interrupted, they’ll return to it, intent on having the opportunity to enjoy a great work of art.

And in case we hadn’t picked up on that at the Masters of the American West art show this past February, the phone calls coming in to ask us, “When are you going to release it as a Fine Art Edition?” were certainly another clue that demand would be high for this particular giclée canvas.

The winner of the 2011 Thomas Moran Award for Painting, Among the Spirits of the Long-Ago People is a magnificent work. Terpning begins with a simple common premise; the grandeur of nature can be sacred. He relates that emotion not by creating a landscape painting, but by focusing on the reverence these men have for what they see. The petroglyphs show that this is an ancient understanding. These men knew it to be so in their time, just as we do today. Their silence, as they take in the wonder about them, is not unlike that of the collectors we saw view this work for the first time.

“Petroglyphs on rock formations indicate that the visitors are in a spiritual place,” describes Howard Terpning, “a place blessed by the long-ago people. Numerous locations like this exist throughout Montana and Wyoming, sometimes high on a mountain with a spectacular view of Mother Earth. For centuries, Indian people have made the journey to these sacred places to give thanks for their blessings and to pray for success in hunting and in battle. Today, they continue to visit these sacred places as their forebears did, leaving small pieces of trade cloth and handmade objects decorated with beads or feathers as gifts for the gods.”

Among the Spirits of the Long-Ago People is available as a Fine Art Canvas. At 33” x 35” it is an impressive work that will majestically fill any large space. Our carefully crafted giclée canvas will give you the experience of owning this great work of art for significantly less than the price the original captured in February. Also available is a more moderately sized and wonderfully priced Fine Art Giclée Paper. Both editions, truly faithful reproductions of the original, are signed by Howard Terpning and numbered.

Collectors who waited too long to commit to last Fall’s The Legend of Geronimo missed out on what is a beautiful (and now hard-to-come-by) canvas or paper edition. Don’t wait too long and miss out again!

August 8 1780: Engaging The Shawnee Village



This battle took place August 8, 1780 during the Revolutionary War period. The British from Ft. Detroit were supplying the natives to attack the colonists in Kentucky and elsewhere. The British built a stockade fort for the Shawnee at their village, which you can see in the upper right corner of image.
Under the leadership of George Rogers Clark, the men of Kentucky retaliated. They moved north to destroy as many Indians and villages as possible while hoping to advance on Ft. Detroit. There were a few villages and six miles of planted corn along the flatlands of the Mad River just west of today’s Springfield, Ohio. This has been called the Battle of Piqua.
The scene shown in my painting is about mid-battle when Clark’s men had attained a hill to the to the west of the stockade. Their six-pound cannon shelled the fort and a group of natives filed out to face-off against Clark’s men.
13-year-old Tecumseh was to have lived at this village, and is shown holding the dog. George Rogers Clark’s cousin, Joseph Rogers, was killed at this battle. He is depicted as the Caucasian Indian on the right side of the native hut.
The engagement was a success for Clark’s bragade, who destroyed six miles of corn, disabling winter raids on Kentucky because the natives needed to hunt game for food.

Before The Little Big Horn



"The boundaries of the Sioux Indian nation defined by the Treaty of 1868 were not respected by pioneers or elements of the Sioux and their Cheyenne and Arapaho allies. So, I wanted a somewhat anxious mood to pervade this image of the great plains as cavalry soldiers and Crow Indian scouts gaze across a beautiful, but troubled landscape."

Blacksmith Of Venango, 1752



This is a portrait of John Frazier who, with a few other English traders on the upper Allegheny river in 1752, were visited by friendly local natives that appreciated his skill at metal repair. By mid-1753 the French had taken his cabin in Venango and he fled to Turtle Creek near the Monongahela River. His cabin there was visited by young George Washington in 1753 and 1754.

Blessing From The Medicine Man



Thunderstorms rumble across the Plains indicating winter’s end and the onset of spring. The People, as the Blackfoot refer to themselves, use this as the signal to gather for the Thunder Pipe Ceremony, a celebration of spring rains, renewed life and good health. This sacred pipe, according to legend, was a gift to the People from the spirit of Thunder, who the Blackfeet believed was one of the mightiest manifestations of the All Powerful One. This gift was passed down through a succession of keepers. When a date for the opening of a pipe bundle is announced, four drummers are notified and a shaman is appointed. Arrangements are made for the feast and the sacred berry soup. The ceremony is held in two lodges placed face to face. The ceremony, likened to the fertility rites of other ancient peoples, is highly structured and the ritual is split between participants and spectators. The pipe bundle is unwrapped only after a morning of prayers and song. After a great feast, the ceremony continues for those who are authorized to dance with the pipe in order to receive its power. At the ceremony’s end, spectators were allowed to come forward and receive individual blessings from the medicine man, bestowed with four sacred streaks of red pigment, placed on the forehead, each cheek and chin. While these markings seem representative of the four directions, the certainty of their meaning lies with the medicine man. Blessing from the Medicine Man by Howard Terpning, A Greenwich Workshop Personal Commission. Published from the artist’s original oil painting. The final edition size will be determined by the number of confirmed orders received by The Greenwich Workshop between April 20 and June 20, 2001.

Blue Norther



"'A Blue Norther,'” says Tom Gilleon, “is a rapidly moving cold front that causes temperatures to drop quickly. It often brings with it precipitation followed by a period of blue skies and cold weather. The main cause of such a dramatic cold snap is an extremely strong storm system separating warm, humid air from frigid, arctic air. If the front passes through at sunrise or sunset, one can expect to see an intense and dramatic display of color in the skies.”

The lesson in Plains’ weather was only a start. Tom, in describing the work, talked about the blend of colors in the sky on the right side of the painting as being “to the north, because the dwelling’s entrances always faced east, even in a large village.” The philosophy, Tom explained, was that every day was a new birth and that if you opened the door flap, the first thing you would see was the sun coming up on a new day. A quick look at Gilleon’s Fine Art Editions (with multiple dwellings) shows that he adheres to this in his paintings.



"Blue Norther" is far more than a meteorological or history lesson. It is a dazzling work of art from one of the hottest artists in the market today. Fourteen of twenty-four releases from The Greenwich Workshop have Sold Out at the Publisher with most other editions hovering just above low inventory. "Blue Norther" will be released as a MasterWork™ Fine Art Edition Giclée canvas at 40" x 30" in an edition of just 15 pieces. A 26"x 20" Fine Art Canvas Edition of 45 pieces will be available as well. "Blue Norther" is one of the most colorful and dramatic Gilleon paintings any collector could hope to display.
