by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $590 - $740

Description: Evening Arrival by Bill Anton - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Paper - Artist Proof Dimensions: 18 x 24 Release Date: 10-2013 ???.Bill Anton was born in Chicago in 1957 and later moved to Prescott, Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University. Later, after committing to painting full-time, he studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. ?While the nature of my work necessitates much studio time, more and more of my painting is done outside.? Anton?s work has been published in Southwest Art, Architectural Digest, Art of the West, Equine Images, Western Horseman and Art-Talk. Corporate collections that include his work are Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, and Trust Company of the West. His award winning work has been displayed at the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Masters of the American West at The Autry Museum, The National Center for American Western Art, the Old West Museum, and The National Museum of Wildlife Art. In addition, his work is in the permanent collection of the prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?I do not see myself as a biographer of the cowboy. I know some artists feel they are recording history on the ranches as life there is today, but the focus of my work has always been mood and passion. If I?m recording anything, I?m recording how I feel about the west. I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night. I want the volume and portent of a cloud to be evident in the calligraphy of a brushstroke. The pack of muscle below a horse?s shoulder should be energized by a gestural application of paint. ?You see, I love to paint. And I love the American west. I was born in Chicago, but the Sierra Nevada, Sangre de Cristo, Sawatch and a hundred other ranges of our rocky mountains were the only ?Big Shoulders? I was ever interested in. Walking thunderstorms, sunstruck cedars, rimrock and artfully abstract water patterns charge the landscape with impossible beauty. ?Amidst this nobility is its caretaker: the rancher. With the natural ease of generations bred to the saddle, he is a powerful image further ennobled by a fine horse. An artist under the spell of the west has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure andequine painting into one supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.? - Bill Anton

High Kensington Street by Mark Lague

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,100 - $1,380

Description: High Kensington Street by Mark Lague - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 30 x 16 Release Date: 8-2007 ???.The fast-paced pulse of urban life is the recurring theme in many of Mark Laguë?s paintings. His canvases capture the overall spirit of the city in loose, dynamic brushstrokes. The artist?s travels take him to many of the world?s most sophisticated cities where he thrives on the hustle and bustle of life that teems daily in the streets. Laguë travels to many of his favorite locations such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris for inspiration. One of his favorite cosmopolitan cities is Rome, Italy. The artist says, ?Rome seems to fit my aesthetic well because there is such a mix between modern life and classical architecture.? This very talented painter considers the shapes that make up the city environment a beautiful, yet abstract, composition just waiting to be put on canvas. Light is a prominent factor in Laguë?s work. His scenes of day and night life in the city are formed by the manner in which light reflects and creates interesting shapes that offer the artist an opportunity to portray the scene in a vibrant, abstract design. Night time offers the artist a wide range of contrasts?dark against light and the mixture of architectural elements offer an endless palette of color and movement waiting for Laguë to bring to life. The artist draws the viewer into the scene with a story about everyday people and life in the city?familiar things combine to form a total ?cityscape? that is an exciting, mesmerizing image to behold. A native resident of Montreal, Canada, Laguë has made the journey from a childhood talent to entering art school at age 17 to a very successful career as an animation artist at a top studio. The artist?s desire to paint on his own full-time came in 2002. He considers his technical experience in color, handling of paint, and knowing the importance of values as the solid foundation for his success. Laguë primarily works in oil, but also favors watercolor. He has won many awards, including the 2002 Award of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America; Laguë also conducts art workshops. He is widely collected and represented by several galleries around the United States. Galleries consider his work spontaneous, vibrant, and attention getting. Collectors love the subject matter, texture, energy, and light in his scenes. Join Mark Laguë on his many journeys through the urban landscape.

Estimated Price: $945 - $1,260

Description: John Buxton - The Fording Place - Hand Signed - Limited Edition Canvas - Image Size: 30"w X 20"h. Limited Edition Of: 100 - It Is Summer In The Iroquois Territory And A Small Group Has Set Up Their Temporary Camp On The Banks Of A River, Where The Fish And Game Are Plentiful. At The End Of The Season The Men And The Women Will Move To Higher Ground, Where More Permanent Camps Keep Them Out Of Reach Of The Winter Floods. While Women Took Care Of Camp Chores, Men Spent Most Of Their Time Hunting Or Preparing To Hunt, If Not Preparing For War Against Some Neighboring Group. The Men Of "the Fording Place" Set Out Across Their River In Search Of Yet Another Unknown Daily Adventure.??about The Artist - John Buxton John Was Born And Raised In The Small Town Of Oxford, Nc. From Childhood, He Excelled At Drawing And Painting. After Two Years Of General College In His Home State, He Traveled To Los Angeles To Earn His Bpa Degree In Illustration From The Art Center College Of Design. John Was A Successful Illustrator For 31 Years, Working In Detroit, Cleveland And Finally Pittsburgh Where He Met And Married A Cute Receptionist Named Noralee. During This Period, Buxton Worked For Several Advertising Studios But In 1983, He Formed John Buxton Illustration, Inc. On Of His Clients Was The National Geographic Society (book Division And World Magazine) Where John Developed A Fascination With Their Dedication To Documentation And Research, Insuring That All Artwork Was As Correct As Possible. This Impressed On Him The Realization That Most Of His Adverting Illustration Had Been "throw Away Art" And Perhaps There Was Another Type Of Art That May Be Held In Higher Regard. Thusly, In 1994, Buxton Put Aside The Requests Of Art Directors To Begin Painting Subjects More To His Interests And Hopefully Of More Validity. He Wasn't Quite Sure, However, With So Much To Choose From, Just Which Subject Matter He Was Going To Paint. John Soon Began Exhibiting His New Oil Paintings, Placing Two Works In The Birds In Art Show At The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. These Two Paintings Were Later Reproduced In The Best Of Wildlife Art, Volume 2 By Rachael R. Wolf, Published By Northlight Books.

The Society Of Animal Artists Elected Him To Membership And Invited Him To Exhibit In Their National Snows. He Also Exhibited With The American Academy Of Equine Artists Before Settling Into His True Niche-historical Art. Buxton's Historical Images Of The 18th Century Depicting Scenes From The Birth Of Our Nation, Allowing "witness" To Momentous Events Or Experiencing Everyday Life On The Frontier Allows American History To Come To Life. His Compassion And Enthusiasm For Historical Accuracy Has Propelled Him To Great Heights Of Recognition. Numerous Museums And Historical Sites Permanently Display His Extensively Researched Paintings. Several Documentary Files Have Chosen His Art To Enhance Their Programs. A Program, Using John's Paintings To Inspire Students With Our Heritage, Was Developed On Disc To Be Distributed To Schools And Teachers. John's Paintings Have Been Featured Within Scores Of Genre Magazines. Feature Articles Have Appeared In Us Art Magazine, Westsylvania Magazine, America's First Freedom And More Recently, Art Of The West Magazine In Its January/february 2006 Issue Featuring John's Paintings And Insight Into Their Creation. The Artists Magazine's Annual Art Competition Awarded Buxton's Painting, How Many Beaver? First Place In The 2005 Portrait/figure Division From Over 4,000 Entries. It Was Featured On The Cover In December. In The Part, Most Of John's Art Was Painted As Private Commissions. He Endeavors To Produce More Paintings Each Year For Select Shows, Such As The Masters Invitational At The Autry Museum In Burbank, Ca, The Miniature Show At The Gilcrease Museum In Tulsa And The Miniature Show At Settlers West Gallery In Tucson.

What Are The Two Men Discussing And What Is The Native Girl With Flint Corn And A Grinding Stone Thinking? We Do Know That 18th Century French Canadian Traders Often Married Native Women And Adopted The Ways Of Their People To Enable Closer Ties For Better Trade And Protection. These Canadians Adopted Native Dress And Often Tattooed Themselves As Well, But It Was Said ? Not About The Face. If You Look Closely, You?ll See The Native Man On The Right Has Facial Markings And The Mark Of A Medicine Wheel On His Hand. The Canadian, Dressed In A French Touque (or Tuque), Is Tattooed With A Jesuit Symbol. Trade With Their French Brothers, And Often With The British, Became A Staple Of All Indian Nations. The Cultural Heritage Of The Shawnee People Is Rich And Colorful.??about The Artist - John Buxton John Was Born And Raised In The Small Town Of Oxford, Nc.

Estimated Price: $990 - $1,240

Description: Golden Lakes Trail by Bill Anton - Edition Size: 95 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 20 x 24 Release Date: 8-2007 ???.Bill Anton was born in Chicago in 1957 and later moved to Prescott, Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University. Later, after committing to painting full-time, he studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. ?While the nature of my work necessitates much studio time, more and more of my painting is done outside.? Anton?s work has been published in Southwest Art, Architectural Digest, Art of the West, Equine Images, Western Horseman and Art-Talk. Corporate collections that include his work are Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, and Trust Company of the West. His award winning work has been displayed at the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Masters of the American West at The Autry Museum, The National Center for American Western Art, the Old West Museum, and The National Museum of Wildlife Art. In addition, his work is in the permanent collection of the prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?I do not see myself as a biographer of the cowboy. I know some artists feel they are recording history on the ranches as life there is today, but the focus of my work has always been mood and passion. If I?m recording anything, I?m recording how I feel about the west. I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night. I want the volume and portent of a cloud to be evident in the calligraphy of a brushstroke. The pack of muscle below a horse?s shoulder should be energized by a gestural application of paint. ?You see, I love to paint. And I love the American west. I was born in Chicago, but the Sierra Nevada, Sangre de Cristo, Sawatch and a hundred other ranges of our rocky mountains were the only ?Big Shoulders? I was ever interested in. Walking thunderstorms, sunstruck cedars, rimrock and artfully abstract water patterns charge the landscape with impossible beauty. ?Amidst this nobility is its caretaker: the rancher. With the natural ease of generations bred to the saddle, he is a powerful image further ennobled by a fine horse. An artist under the spell of the west has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure andequine painting into one supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.? - Bill Anton

Estimated Price: $188 - $250

Description: John Buxton - Coming To Trade - Hand Signed - Limited Edition Print - Image Size: 22 1/2"w X 13 1/2"h. Limited Edition Of: 250 - John Buxton, ?artist Of Our Heritage,? Engages Both History Buffs And Art Lovers Alike With Each Fine Art Limited Edition. His Unique Combination Of Detailed Historical Accuracy And Artistic Mastery Brings The Past To Life As Few Others Can. In "coming To Trade," Buxton Portrays The Co-existence Between The French And Native Americans. ?this Painting An Iconic Depiction Of What Drew Both Sides To Tolerate The Other In What Came To Be Known As The Fur Trade,? Buxton Says. ?furs From The New World Helped Finance French Expansion And Trade Items Enhanced The Living Standard Of The Native Nations. Bows And Arrows Were No Longer The Preferred Hunting Method And French Cutlery Replaced Stone Axes And Knives. Cooking Pots, Needles And Even Wire Soon Became Highly Prized Among The Indians As They Became Slightly More European. French Traders, Many Of Whom Lived Among The Indians, Changed As Well. They Readily Accepted Native Culture And Custom ? To The Extent That It Was Difficult To Distinguish A Frenchman From His Native Ally. Though They Tried, Jesuit Priests Were Not Quite As Successful At Transforming Natives Into Cultured, God-fearing Frenchmen.???about The Artist - John Buxton John Was Born And Raised In The Small Town Of Oxford, Nc. From Childhood, He Excelled At Drawing And Painting. After Two Years Of General College In His Home State, He Traveled To Los Angeles To Earn His Bpa Degree In Illustration From The Art Center College Of Design. John Was A Successful Illustrator For 31 Years, Working In Detroit, Cleveland And Finally Pittsburgh Where He Met And Married A Cute Receptionist Named Noralee. During This Period, Buxton Worked For Several Advertising Studios But In 1983, He Formed John Buxton Illustration, Inc. On Of His Clients Was The National Geographic Society (book Division And World Magazine) Where John Developed A Fascination With Their Dedication To Documentation And Research, Insuring That All Artwork Was As Correct As Possible. This Impressed On Him The Realization That Most Of His Adverting Illustration Had Been "throw Away Art" And Perhaps There Was Another Type Of Art That May Be Held In Higher Regard. Thusly, In 1994, Buxton Put Aside The Requests Of Art Directors To Begin Painting Subjects More To His Interests And Hopefully Of More Validity. He Wasn't Quite Sure, However, With So Much To Choose From, Just Which Subject Matter He Was Going To Paint. John Soon Began Exhibiting His New Oil Paintings, Placing Two Works In The Birds In Art Show At The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. These Two Paintings Were Later Reproduced In The Best Of Wildlife Art, Volume 2 By Rachael R. Wolf, Published By Northlight Books. John Also Tried The National Park Service's Annual Competition, Art For The Parks Placing In Their Top 100 And Included In Their Traveling Show. The Society Of Animal Artists Elected Him To Membership And Invited Him To Exhibit In Their National Snows. He Also Exhibited With The American Academy Of Equine Artists Before Settling Into His True Niche-historical Art. Buxton's Historical Images Of The 18th Century Depicting Scenes From The Birth Of Our Nation, Allowing "witness" To Momentous Events Or Experiencing Everyday Life On The Frontier Allows American History To Come To Life. His Compassion And Enthusiasm For Historical Accuracy Has Propelled Him To Great Heights Of Recognition. Numerous Museums And Historical Sites Permanently Display His Extensively Researched Paintings. Several Documentary Files Have Chosen His Art To Enhance Their Programs. A Program, Using John's Paintings To Inspire Students With Our Heritage, Was Developed On Disc To Be Distributed To Schools And Teachers. John's Paintings Have Been Featured Within Scores Of Genre Magazines. Feature Articles Have Appeared In Us Art Magazine, Westsylvania Magazine, America's First Freedom And More Recently, Art Of The West Magazine In Its January/february 2006 Issue Featuring John's Paintings And Insight Into Their Creation. The Artists Magazine's Annual Art Competition Awarded Buxton's Painting, How Many Beaver? First Place In The 2005 Portrait/figure Division From Over 4,000 Entries. It Was Featured On The Cover In December. In The Part, Most Of John's Art Was Painted As Private Commissions. He Endeavors To Produce More Paintings Each Year For Select Shows, Such As The Masters Invitational At The Autry Museum In Burbank, Ca, The Miniature Show At The Gilcrease Museum In Tulsa And The Miniature Show At Settlers West Gallery In Tucson. This Year, John Will Also Exhibit In The Eiteljorg Museum's Quest For The West Show In Indianapolis. He Was Recently Accepted Into Membership Of The Oil Painters Of America. He Lives In Pennsylvania With His Wife Noralee. They Have Two Children, Bryan And Megan And Will Soon Be Blessed With Two New Grandchildren.

Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Arizona was a natural environment that influenced Cox?s love for being surrounded by cattle and horses and the wide open spaces. While most of the artist?s time is spent painting, he rides and works on various ranches throughout the West and also raises cattle and trains horses he owns. Cox?s everyday experience with the cowboy life is reflected in the outstanding works that he creates. He combines color, value, perspective, accuracy, and design in his scenes of the daily life of the cowboy. As a perfectionist, his attention to detail and hands-on knowledge of the cattle and horses he so loves to paint have earned the artist legends of admirers and collectors who appreciate his accurate portrayals of western life. Viewers are brought up-close and personal with the animals and people who inhabit Cox?s world. The West comes alive in his paintings. Considered one of the great western artists of our time, Cox is one of today?s most successful painters in his genre. Through the years, many accolades have been bestowed on this very talented artist, and this year Cox was asked to join the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America; he participated in the 2008 exhibition. Cox has won numerous awards for his wonderful art. In 2008, Décor magazine featured Cox as one of the 14 Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists. In 2007, his painting, ?Good Horses and Wide Open Spaces,? won the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award; at this same exhibit in 2004, ?Along Eagle Creek? won the award. In 2003, the artist was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum exhibit. Cox?s painting, ?On to Better Pastures,? won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award. In 2001, the artist was awarded the Will Rogers Western Artist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists and Friends of Western Art. Cox is also a three-time winner of the Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show at The Mountain Oyster Club. Tim, a fourth generation Arizonan, and his wife, Suzie, enjoy the life that the artist paints on their ranch in New Mexico that they call home. Surrounded by their cattle and horses, they truly live the western life that most of us can only dream about.

Estimated Price: $450 - $570

Description: Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries by Susan Blackwood - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 20 x 24 Release Date: 7-2010 ???.Pakistan 1975: in the midst of a clambering market place, unable to speak the language...I became aware of the importance of the common bonds that universally unite us all. The necessity to communicate these visions, feelings and emotions became paramount. Art became my language. I have chosen as my subject matter the simple, beautiful touching moments that are common both in nature and in the life of every person. These are the moments that often pass without notice and are the very ones that lend continuity to our lives and contribute to its richness and depth. These moments are the language I use when I paint. As in any meaningful conversation, the structure of the message must be clear. Thus, my color, brush strokes, textures and composition are carefully chosen, like essential words, to convey to the viewer the message that I wish to impart. My studies of classical art techniques began when I was a child and will always continue as I strive for better clarity and higher achievement. As words are carefully chosen for a poem, I, too, limit my brush strokes and detail to relay just enough to give the viewer my thoughts and involve their imagination. I purposely leave areas of my paintings in mystery for the viewer to become engaged in the story. I strive for each painting to be a poem rather than a novel. Some of my loose paintings are like haiku poems that are simple impressionistic vignettes. While some of my paintings are like sonnets, more spelled out in detail. Through the medium that I have chosen, I strive continually to develop a rich and colorful dialog in a language that will reach the heart. Susan won Best of Show 2010 at the American Women Artists National Exhibition held in Dallas.

Cowboy Cut by Tim Cox

Lot 488S: Cowboy Cut by Tim Cox

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,700 - $2,125

Description: Cowboy Cut by Tim Cox - Edition Size: 150 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 25 x 40 Release Date: 10-2008 ???.As a young child, Tim Cox vowed he ?was going to be a cowboy artist? when he grew up, and he has lived that dream for 30 years. Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Arizona was a natural environment that influenced Cox?s love for being surrounded by cattle and horses and the wide open spaces. While most of the artist?s time is spent painting, he rides and works on various ranches throughout the West and also raises cattle and trains horses he owns. Cox?s everyday experience with the cowboy life is reflected in the outstanding works that he creates. He combines color, value, perspective, accuracy, and design in his scenes of the daily life of the cowboy. As a perfectionist, his attention to detail and hands-on knowledge of the cattle and horses he so loves to paint have earned the artist legends of admirers and collectors who appreciate his accurate portrayals of western life. Viewers are brought up-close and personal with the animals and people who inhabit Cox?s world. The West comes alive in his paintings. Considered one of the great western artists of our time, Cox is one of today?s most successful painters in his genre. Through the years, many accolades have been bestowed on this very talented artist, and this year Cox was asked to join the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America; he participated in the 2008 exhibition. Cox has won numerous awards for his wonderful art. In 2008, Décor magazine featured Cox as one of the 14 Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists. In 2007, his painting, ?Good Horses and Wide Open Spaces,? won the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award; at this same exhibit in 2004, ?Along Eagle Creek? won the award. In 2003, the artist was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum exhibit. Cox?s painting, ?On to Better Pastures,? won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award. In 2001, the artist was awarded the Will Rogers Western Artist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists and Friends of Western Art. Cox is also a three-time winner of the Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show at The Mountain Oyster Club.

Encroachment by Bill Anton

Lot 733S: Encroachment by Bill Anton

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $590 - $740

Description: Encroachment by Bill Anton - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 16 x 24 Release Date: 12-2011 ???.Bill Anton was born in Chicago in 1957 and later moved to Prescott, Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University. Later, after committing to painting full-time, he studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. ?While the nature of my work necessitates much studio time, more and more of my painting is done outside.? Anton?s work has been published in Southwest Art, Architectural Digest, Art of the West, Equine Images, Western Horseman and Art-Talk. Corporate collections that include his work are Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, and Trust Company of the West. His award winning work has been displayed at the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Masters of the American West at The Autry Museum, The National Center for American Western Art, the Old West Museum, and The National Museum of Wildlife Art. In addition, his work is in the permanent collection of the prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?I do not see myself as a biographer of the cowboy. I know some artists feel they are recording history on the ranches as life there is today, but the focus of my work has always been mood and passion. If I?m recording anything, I?m recording how I feel about the west. I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night. I want the volume and portent of a cloud to be evident in the calligraphy of a brushstroke. The pack of muscle below a horse?s shoulder should be energized by a gestural application of paint. ?You see, I love to paint. And I love the American west. I was born in Chicago, but the Sierra Nevada, Sangre de Cristo, Sawatch and a hundred other ranges of our rocky mountains were the only ?Big Shoulders? I was ever interested in. Walking thunderstorms, sunstruck cedars, rimrock and artfully abstract water patterns charge the landscape with impossible beauty. ?Amidst this nobility is its caretaker: the rancher. With the natural ease of generations bred to the saddle, he is a powerful image further ennobled by a fine horse. An artist under the spell of the west has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure andequine painting into one supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.? - Bill Anton
