Dreams of a Nation by G. Harvey

Lot 71S: Dreams of a Nation by G. Harvey

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,900 - $2,375

Description: Dreams of a Nation by G. Harvey - Edition Size: 50 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 30 x 24 Release Date: 2-2010 ???.G.Harvey and his images have influenced a worldwide enthusiasm and demand for contemporary American art for a generation. Few artists have intrigued and captivated art collectors as widely as the celebrated painter, G. Harvey. During his storied career, G. Harvey has painted turn-of-the-century America as no other artist. His scenes are warm, thoughtful portraits of our country?s bustling cities in a more genteel era and outstanding Western sagas of working cowhands at home in rugged landscapes. Gerald Harvey Jones, known to his patrons and peers as G. Harvey, grew up in the rugged hills in Central Texas where herds of longhorn cattle were driven along the dusty trails. This background has been the inspiration for the artist?s commitment to portraying the spirit of America. Through his art, our country?s history lives. Harvey restores all those memories, sights, sounds, and emotions. With his ability to capture the drama, light, and feeling of a moment, the artist brings the heart of his painting to the viewer. G. Harvey is not only an extraordinary painter, but an accomplished sculptor. His original works and bronze sculptures are in the collections of major corporations, prestigious museums, American presidents, governors, foreign leaders, and captains of industry. The artist has been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of four books. Harvey has been honored with one-man shows at the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives in Washington, D. C. The artist?s original paintings are represented in major galleries. His annual, one-man shows are consistent sell-outs where Harvey collectors come from all around the country to view and compete to own an outstanding work by the artist. G. Harvey lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with his wife, Pat, where they enjoy living near their children and grandchildren. A studio adjacent to his home is a sanctuary for creating the paintings that his legions of devoted collectors eagerly anticipate with each new work. G. Harvey?s work reminds us that the world has changed very much and very little; country lanes and city streets are still romantic. It is, after all, from living in the present that the artist draws inspiration for the past.

JOHN BUXTON - THE FORDING PLACE

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

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. 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.

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. 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.

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

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.

Description: Texas Heritage by G. Harvey - Edition Size: 350 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 24 x 36 Release Date: 6-2013 ???.G.Harvey and his images have influenced a worldwide enthusiasm and demand for contemporary American art for a generation. Few artists have intrigued and captivated art collectors as widely as the celebrated painter, G. Harvey. During his storied career, G. Harvey has painted turn-of-the-century America as no other artist. His scenes are warm, thoughtful portraits of our country?s bustling cities in a more genteel era and outstanding Western sagas of working cowhands at home in rugged landscapes. Gerald Harvey Jones, known to his patrons and peers as G. Harvey, grew up in the rugged hills in Central Texas where herds of longhorn cattle were driven along the dusty trails. This background has been the inspiration for the artist?s commitment to portraying the spirit of America. Through his art, our country?s history lives. Harvey restores all those memories, sights, sounds, and emotions. With his ability to capture the drama, light, and feeling of a moment, the artist brings the heart of his painting to the viewer. G. Harvey is not only an extraordinary painter, but an accomplished sculptor. His original works and bronze sculptures are in the collections of major corporations, prestigious museums, American presidents, governors, foreign leaders, and captains of industry. The artist has been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of four books. Harvey has been honored with one-man shows at the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives in Washington, D. C. The artist?s original paintings are represented in major galleries. His annual, one-man shows are consistent sell-outs where Harvey collectors come from all around the country to view and compete to own an outstanding work by the artist. G. Harvey lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with his wife, Pat, where they enjoy living near their children and grandchildren. A studio adjacent to his home is a sanctuary for creating the paintings that his legions of devoted collectors eagerly anticipate with each new work. G. Harvey?s work reminds us that the world has changed very much and very little; country lanes and city streets are still romantic. It is, after all, from living in the present that the artist draws inspiration for the past.

Harvey restores all those memories, sights, sounds, and emotions. With his ability to capture the drama, light, and feeling of a moment, the artist brings the heart of his painting to the viewer. G. Harvey is not only an extraordinary painter, but an accomplished sculptor. His original works and bronze sculptures are in the collections of major corporations, prestigious museums, American presidents, governors, foreign leaders, and captains of industry. The artist has been the recipient of innumerable awards and the subject of four books. Harvey has been honored with one-man shows at the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives in Washington, D. C. The artist?s original paintings are represented in major galleries. His annual, one-man shows are consistent sell-outs where Harvey collectors come from all around the country to view and compete to own an outstanding work by the artist. G. Harvey lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with his wife, Pat, where they enjoy living near their children and grandchildren. A studio adjacent to his home is a sanctuary for creating the paintings that his legions of devoted collectors eagerly anticipate with each new work. G. Harvey?s work reminds us that the world has changed very much and very little; country lanes and city streets are still romantic. It is, after all, from living in the present that the artist draws inspiration for the past.

Limited Edition Of: 550 - This Battle Took Place August 8, 1780 During The Revolutionary War Period. The British From Fort 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 Fort 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 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 Said To Have Lived In 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 Brigade, Who Destroyed Six Miles Of Corn, Disabling Winter Raids On Kentucky Because The Natives Needed To Hunt Game For Food.??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.
