Each painting from the artist?s easel is a masterpiece created from extensive research and numerous photographs of each of his subjects. This technique, along with the aid of historical photographs, results in a timeless quality in each of Chase?s works. In his quest for mystique, accuracy, and a true sense of history, Chase does extensive research. His travels have led him from New York and Washington, D.C. to Colorado and California and finally to Italy in a never-ending search to obtain materials and photography for new paintings. The talented artist says, "Being a photorealist, I am dependent on finding accurate reference material for each painting.? Chase works with acrylics on canvas, spending hundreds of hours on each painting with the ultimate goal of presenting a fresh, unique, and elegant approach to familiar subjects. The detail in each painting is remarkable, but the mood each is equally impressive. Chase is acknowledged as a master of breathtaking scenes depicting our country?s natural and historical treasures. He has painted images of such famous landmarks as The White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court building to name a few. As a naturalized citizen, he felt honored as well as professionally challenged to paint these subjects. Chase also paints magnificent foreign landscapes. His travels in Italy inspired him to paint St. Peter?s Basilica and the romantic canals of Venice. The artist?s outstanding talent in his use of light is evident in "The Glory of San Pietro? and "The Mists of Morning.? Without traveling to these world-famous locales, the viewer is able to feel as if the scene is unfolding before them in person. Rising early to photograph the dramatic light of sunrise or awaiting the soft, moody glow of sunset, Chase captures the emotion and direction in which he will paint his subject. The artist will continue to create elegant, awe-inspiring scenes by combining antique and modern photographs with just the right touch of artistic license. Rod Chase is represented by Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas. He is published exclusively by Somerset Fine Art. Chase, a native of Canada, and his wife live with their five children in the Texas Hill Country. In 1999, he became a United States citizen.

BONNIE MARRIS - MORNING RUN

Lot 476W: BONNIE MARRIS - MORNING RUN

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $3,713 - $4,950

Description: Bonnie Marris - Morning Run - Hand Signed - Extra Large Canvas Edition - Image Size: 60"w X 43"h. Limited Edition Of: 50 - What Separates Bonnie Marris From Other Wildlife Artists Is Not Only Her Devoted Treatment Of Her Animal Subjects But Her Meticulous Attention To The Scenery That Frames Them. The Landscape Acts As A Muted But Lovely Secondary Subject In Marris' Dynamic Wildlife Paintings. The Horses In "morning Run" Are The Embodiment Of Freedom, Pounding Forward, Needing Only To Run. The Personality Of Each Horse And Their Motion Can Be Clearly Seen: The Strong Second-in-command Just Behind The Leader, Jockeying For Position; The Skittish And Focused Chestnut And The Haughty, Almost Balletic Grays At The Borders Of The Group. Considered Individually, The Horses Are Magnificent; But As Bonnie Marris Paints Them, As A Herd In Motion, They Are Breathtaking.??about The Artist - Bonnie Marris Bonnie Marris Has Taken An Unusual Path Into Art; She Developed Her Talent By Portraying Animals ?from The Inside Out.? While She Was A Student At Michigan State University, Bonnie Illustrated Several Major Books. One Volume She Worked On Was A Leading Expert?s Mammalogy Text That Contained Several Hundred Drawings And Detail Studies. This Massive Project Attracted The Attention Of Noted Zoologist George Schaller, Who Invited Bonnie To Prepare The Art For Posters That Would Support His Worldwide Rare Animal Relief Programs. Beyond Academic Training And Emotional Involvement, Art Requires Another Element For Which There Is No Substitute: Experience. Each Year, Bonnie Makes Two Major Trips, And Countless Smaller Ones, To Observe And Learn About The Wildlife She Loves. In 1980, One Such Voyage Took Her To Alaska, Where She Lived In The Wilderness For Six Months. She Recounts, ?to Get Into A Natural Environment And See The Animals On Their Own Terms Is As Important As Knowing The Animals Themselves. For Instance, Gray Wolves On The Tundra?the Vast, Vast Tundra With The Wind And Other Forces Of Nature At Their Most Extreme?that?s What Makes Them What They Are. To Stand Not Far From A Grizzly That Is So Overpowering, So Beautiful And So Large . . . To Watch It Pull Up A Small Tree With A Swipe Of Its Paw And Just A Few Minutes Later See It Delicately Picking Blueberries With Its Black Lips. . . Alaska Changed Me; It Gave Me The Biggest Incentive To Paint And Increased My Interest In The Predators: The Cats, Bears, Coyotes, Wolves And Foxes. They Exist On So Many Levels. Their Moods Show In Their Eyes And We Can Learn So Much From Them.?

One the most exciting periods in his career was being chosen as a photographer for the world-famous "Marlboro Man? advertising campaign for twelve years, considered to be one of the most recognizable images of all time. As a result of Clasen working with many ranchers and becoming friends with them while shooting the Marlboro images, the artist began his love affair with the iconic West.

Marveling at their sheer power, grace, and beauty, Clasen attempts to capture the magic of the animals when in full flight as the dust swirls around them and their manes float through the air.

Early Morning Run by Nancy Glazier

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $2,500

Description: Early Morning Run by Nancy Glazier - Edition Size: 25 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 20 x 40 Release Date: 10-2011 ???.Nancy Glazier is passionate about her art and the subject of her art. This passion is evident in the way she paints and the way she lives ? they are inseparable. Surrounded by mountain beauty and the animals the artist loves to paint, Glazier says, ?I feel a kinship with the animal that grows as the painting progresses. There is a powerful chemistry at work. People ask me, ?Which is your favorite animal to paint?? I can tell you it is always the very animal I am painting at the time." For Glazier, it is ??a warm, living, breathing process that brings me back again and again to the easel. It is my ultimate reward.? Many of the artist?s admirers and collectors consider Glazier to be an extraordinary artist whose paintings seem ?alive.? For her, this is warm praise, because she desires to share what she experiences through her paintings. She hopes the viewer, too, will feel the warmth of the sun or the crisp chill of winter, smell the sage and dust, or hear the bellow of the bison. Glazier knew she wanted to be an artist from early childhood. In her teens, she lived in Wyoming where she immersed herself in the rugged, western terrain. There she was mentored and taught by artist Adolph Spohr, who gave her private instruction and taught her how a professional uses paint and brush?how to observe and self-correct. The artist?s style evolved over time. After seeing a dramatic photograph of a grizzly, she was awakened to a desire to paint animals ?close up and hair-by-hair.? The artist has taken hands-on anatomy classes that enable her to paint an amazingly accurate portrait of an animal from its bone structure to muscles to hair, bringing it life on her canvas. The artist enjoys much success as one of today?s most talented wildlife painters. Her original works are represented by one of America?s leading galleries. Her paintings have been featured at prestigious shows throughout the country, and two of her works hang in the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City. Glazier and her husband reside in an idyllic setting in Nevada where a spacious studio allows her to create her extraordinary paintings and continue her journey of discovery to capture ?the whole picture.?

River's Edge by Martin Grelle

Lot 729S: River's Edge by Martin Grelle

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $190 - $240

Description: River's Edge by Martin Grelle - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 6-2011 ???.Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting, or the American cowboy in the dusty cattle-working pens, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle studies diligently to portray the diverse cultures of the American West accurately and with sensitivity. His knowledge of the cowboy?s way of life, gained from his time spent horseback on ranches during the annual Cowboy Artists of America?s (CAA) trail ride, as well as the time spent with local ranchers and friends, is evident in his contemporary cowboy paintings. The many hours spent in museums, at historical re-enactments, in visiting with experts on Native American culture, and reading from his extensive library, have helped him to bring his vision of the Plains Indian culture to life on canvas. Grelle was born when his family lived on a small farm a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he still calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, including many of Grelle?s close friends. They all enjoy getting together to "talk art?, critique each other?s work, and exchange ideas. Many of them, including Grelle, teach annual workshops through a local art facility known as the Bosque Conservatory, which has begun to have a national presence. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment. The artist?s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With excellent guidance from James Boren, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Since then, Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek subject matter for his work. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist?s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative. For more than 30 years Grelle has made a career of his art, and has won awards of both regional and national importance. In 1995, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, and he is one of the younger active members. He is currently serving his second term on the board of directors for that organization, and participates in the Annual CAA Exhibition and Sale at the Phoenix Art Museum each October. Grelle won the CAA People?s Choice Award in 2002, for his painting Monarchs of the North, and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award in 2008, for his painting Newlyweds. He has also been privileged to participate in other major juried shows across the United States. Included in that list are the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which he has participated in each year since 1995, the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition & Sale at the Autry National Center, and the inaugural Quest for the West Exhibition & Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum. Awards of merit include the Prix de West Purchase Award, which he won in 2002 for his painting Teller of Tales, and again in 2005, for his painting Two Coups, making him one of only 6 artists to have won the top award twice. Grelle has also won twice the Nona Jean Hulsey Ramsey Buyer?s Choice Award at Prix de West, first in 2004 with Signs Along the Snake, and again in 2006, for Dust in the Distance. The artist is represented by Overland Gallery of Fine Art, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a one-man show is held for Grelle each March. The 2008 show marked Grelle?s 20th anniversary one-man show with the gallery. The artist has been profiled in a number of publications, including the magazines Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Persimmon Hill, American Cowboy, Western Horseman, Wild West, and InformArt. His work has also been showcased on the covers of many of these publications. Grelle says humbly, "I thank God for the ability and the opportunities He has given me, and I hope I can continue to grow and learn more with each finished painting. I am honored by everyone who collects my work, and I will always strive to create artwork worthy of their attention, and their investment.?

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,260 - $1,580

Description: Snowy Morning by Norm Clasen - Edition Size: 195 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 24 x 36 Release Date: 10-2008 ???.It?s said that one picture is worth a thousand words?.this is an apt description for every image shot by famed photographer Norm Clasen. As a free-lance photographer, Clasen has traveled the globe recording man, nature, and the world around us. With a very successful career spanning four decades, the photographer-artist is passionate about his work. Clasen?s images have been featured in numerous magazines in this country, as well as in European publications. One the most exciting periods in his career was being chosen as a photographer for the world-famous "Marlboro Man? advertising campaign for twelve years, considered to be one of the most recognizable images of all time. As a result of Clasen working with many ranchers and becoming friends with them while shooting the Marlboro images, the artist began his love affair with the iconic West. The artist?s interests began focusing on the magnificent horses that roam the ranches and plains. Marveling at their sheer power, grace, and beauty, Clasen attempts to capture the magic of the animals when in full flight as the dust swirls around them and their manes float through the air. Few landscapes are too challenging for Clasen ? filming in dust, rain or snow and pushing light to its limit have resulted in this photographer-artist creating some of his most memorable and dramatic images. Clasen?s work usually reflects natural elements as the main focus using 35mm equipment in either film or digital formats. In some cases, he enhances the photographs to create an artistic aura, taking on a painting-like feeling, but maintaining their photographic quality. Always striving to reflect the timeless nature of the West, Clasen produces photographs that are at-once classic, but created with modern technology, and yet evoking softer, grainy images that appear to echo from the past. Clasen refers to this aspect of his work as "artography? and believes it is a new and evolving genre for the art market. Norm and his wife, Laura, reside on a ranch in Colorado with horses and Max the Wonderdog. With a magnificent landscape to call home, the photographer and his wife are forever grateful to be surrounded with the ever-changing beauty of nature. Join Norm Clasen as he records a world that never disappoints and offers a new vista at every turn.

A Camp Along the River by Martin Grelle

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $590 - $740

Description: A Camp Along the River by Martin Grelle - Edition Size: 395 - Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 22 x 28 Release Date: 4-1996 ???.Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting, or the American cowboy in the dusty cattle-working pens, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle studies diligently to portray the diverse cultures of the American West accurately and with sensitivity. His knowledge of the cowboy?s way of life, gained from his time spent horseback on ranches during the annual Cowboy Artists of America?s (CAA) trail ride, as well as the time spent with local ranchers and friends, is evident in his contemporary cowboy paintings. The many hours spent in museums, at historical re-enactments, in visiting with experts on Native American culture, and reading from his extensive library, have helped him to bring his vision of the Plains Indian culture to life on canvas. Grelle was born when his family lived on a small farm a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he still calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, including many of Grelle?s close friends. They all enjoy getting together to "talk art?, critique each other?s work, and exchange ideas. Many of them, including Grelle, teach annual workshops through a local art facility known as the Bosque Conservatory, which has begun to have a national presence. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment. The artist?s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With excellent guidance from James Boren, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Since then, Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek subject matter for his work. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist?s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative. For more than 30 years Grelle has made a career of his art, and has won awards of both regional and national importance. In 1995, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, and he is one of the younger active members. He is currently serving his second term on the board of directors for that organization, and participates in the Annual CAA Exhibition and Sale at the Phoenix Art Museum each October. Grelle won the CAA People?s Choice Award in 2002, for his painting Monarchs of the North, and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award in 2008, for his painting Newlyweds. He has also been privileged to participate in other major juried shows across the United States. Included in that list are the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which he has participated in each year since 1995, the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition & Sale at the Autry National Center, and the inaugural Quest for the West Exhibition & Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum. Awards of merit include the Prix de West Purchase Award, which he won in 2002 for his painting Teller of Tales, and again in 2005, for his painting Two Coups, making him one of only 6 artists to have won the top award twice. Grelle has also won twice the Nona Jean Hulsey Ramsey Buyer?s Choice Award at Prix de West, first in 2004 with Signs Along the Snake, and again in 2006, for Dust in the Distance. The artist is represented by Overland Gallery of Fine Art, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a one-man show is held for Grelle each March. The 2008 show marked Grelle?s 20th anniversary one-man show with the gallery. The artist has been profiled in a number of publications, including the magazines Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Persimmon Hill, American Cowboy, Western Horseman, Wild West, and InformArt. His work has also been showcased on the covers of many of these publications. Grelle says humbly, "I thank God for the ability and the opportunities He has given me, and I hope I can continue to grow and learn more with each finished painting. I am honored by everyone who collects my work, and I will always strive to create artwork worthy of their attention, and their investment.?

by Artistic Holdings Company

Estimated Price: $280 - $420

Description: Artist: Batia Magal. Title: Heavenly Morning. Medium: Serigraph on Paper. Image Size: 26x12. Paper Size: . Limited Edition Size: 750. __________Artist Biography: Batia Magal was born in Israel in 1953. From childhood onwards, she displayed a marked talent for drawing and an all - embracing interest in art. It is therefore not surprising that she was accepted as a student at the Avni Art Institute, where she came under the influence of such well-known artists as Streichman and Wexler, just to name a few. Her work seems to have developed along various lines, all of which converged and fused into a very personal and feminine statement. The basic calligraphic drawing of the female figure or flower-filled vase is the centerpiece which forms the structural base of the work, to which the brilliant washes of lively colors act as a counterpoint, with the deeper and warmer hues evoking the luminosity of medieval stained-glass windows. More recently, yet another intriguing factor has been added by the introduction of fabric textures and prints of a seemingly unconnected nature, forming collages in which the three elements of drawing, color and print or fabric texture, maintain a balance which tends to emphasize the works' structural composition.

His travels have led him from New York and Washington, D.C. to Colorado and California and finally to Italy in a never-ending search to obtain materials and photography for new paintings. The talented artist says, "Being a photorealist, I am dependent on finding accurate reference material for each painting.? Chase works with acrylics on canvas, spending hundreds of hours on each painting with the ultimate goal of presenting a fresh, unique, and elegant approach to familiar subjects.

Description: Morning by Nancy Glazier - Edition Size: 950 - Print - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 16 x 24 Release Date: 8-2008 ???.Nancy Glazier is passionate about her art and the subject of her art. This passion is evident in the way she paints and the way she lives ? they are inseparable. Surrounded by mountain beauty and the animals the artist loves to paint, Glazier says, ?I feel a kinship with the animal that grows as the painting progresses. There is a powerful chemistry at work. People ask me, ?Which is your favorite animal to paint?? I can tell you it is always the very animal I am painting at the time." For Glazier, it is ??a warm, living, breathing process that brings me back again and again to the easel. It is my ultimate reward.? Many of the artist?s admirers and collectors consider Glazier to be an extraordinary artist whose paintings seem ?alive.? For her, this is warm praise, because she desires to share what she experiences through her paintings. She hopes the viewer, too, will feel the warmth of the sun or the crisp chill of winter, smell the sage and dust, or hear the bellow of the bison. Glazier knew she wanted to be an artist from early childhood. In her teens, she lived in Wyoming where she immersed herself in the rugged, western terrain. There she was mentored and taught by artist Adolph Spohr, who gave her private instruction and taught her how a professional uses paint and brush?how to observe and self-correct. The artist?s style evolved over time. After seeing a dramatic photograph of a grizzly, she was awakened to a desire to paint animals ?close up and hair-by-hair.? The artist has taken hands-on anatomy classes that enable her to paint an amazingly accurate portrait of an animal from its bone structure to muscles to hair, bringing it life on her canvas. The artist enjoys much success as one of today?s most talented wildlife painters. Her original works are represented by one of America?s leading galleries. Her paintings have been featured at prestigious shows throughout the country, and two of her works hang in the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City. Glazier and her husband reside in an idyllic setting in Nevada where a spacious studio allows her to create her extraordinary paintings and continue her journey of discovery to capture ?the whole picture.?

Chase works with acrylics on canvas, spending hundreds of hours on each painting with the ultimate goal of presenting a fresh, unique, and elegant approach to familiar subjects. The detail in each painting is remarkable, but the mood each is equally impressive. Chase is acknowledged as a master of breathtaking scenes depicting our country?s natural and historical treasures. He has painted images of such famous landmarks as The White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court building to name a few. As a naturalized citizen, he felt honored as well as professionally challenged to paint these subjects. Chase also paints magnificent foreign landscapes. His travels in Italy inspired him to paint St. Peter?s Basilica and the romantic canals of Venice. The artist?s outstanding talent in his use of light is evident in "The Glory of San Pietro? and "The Mists of Morning.? Without traveling to these world-famous locales, the viewer is able to feel as if the scene is unfolding before them in person. Rising early to photograph the dramatic light of sunrise or awaiting the soft, moody glow of sunset, Chase captures the emotion and direction in which he will paint his subject. The artist will continue to create elegant, awe-inspiring scenes by combining antique and modern photographs with just the right touch of artistic license. Rod Chase is represented by Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas. He is published exclusively by Somerset Fine Art. Chase, a native of Canada, and his wife live with their five children in the Texas Hill Country. In 1999, he became a United States citizen.

The Landscape Acts As A Muted But Lovely Secondary Subject In Marris' Dynamic Wildlife Paintings. The Horses In "morning Run" Are The Embodiment Of Freedom, Pounding Forward, Needing Only To Run. The Personality Of Each Horse And Their Motion Can Be Clearly Seen: The Strong Second-in-command Just Behind The Leader, Jockeying For Position; The Skittish And Focused Chestnut And The Haughty, Almost Balletic Grays At The Borders Of The Group. Considered Individually, The Horses Are Magnificent; But As Bonnie Marris Paints Them, As A Herd In Motion, They Are Breathtaking.??about The Artist - Bonnie Marris Bonnie Marris Has Taken An Unusual Path Into Art; She Developed Her Talent By Portraying Animals ?from The Inside Out.? While She Was A Student At Michigan State University, Bonnie Illustrated Several Major Books.

This Massive Project Attracted The Attention Of Noted Zoologist George Schaller, Who Invited Bonnie To Prepare The Art For Posters That Would Support His Worldwide Rare Animal Relief Programs. Beyond Academic Training And Emotional Involvement, Art Requires Another Element For Which There Is No Substitute: Experience. Each Year, Bonnie Makes Two Major Trips, And Countless Smaller Ones, To Observe And Learn About The Wildlife She Loves. In 1980, One Such Voyage Took Her To Alaska, Where She Lived In The Wilderness For Six Months. She Recounts, ?to Get Into A Natural Environment And See The Animals On Their Own Terms Is As Important As Knowing The Animals Themselves. For Instance, Gray Wolves On The Tundra?the Vast, Vast Tundra With The Wind And Other Forces Of Nature At Their Most Extreme?that?s What Makes Them What They Are. To Stand Not Far From A Grizzly That Is So Overpowering, So Beautiful And So Large . . . To Watch It Pull Up A Small Tree With A Swipe Of Its Paw And Just A Few Minutes Later See It Delicately Picking Blueberries With Its Black Lips. . . Alaska Changed Me; It Gave Me The Biggest Incentive To Paint And Increased My Interest In The Predators: The Cats, Bears, Coyotes, Wolves And Foxes. They Exist On So Many Levels. Their Moods Show In Their Eyes And We Can Learn So Much From Them.?

Deeply Affected By The Emotions, Shifting Attitudes And Music Of The 1960s, The Music Of 60s Icon Bob Dylan Often Accompanies Hanks As He Paints In His Studio Today. Steve Hanks? Paintings Are Much More Than Endearing Images Of Women And Children. Rather Than Conveying A Specific Message Through His Paintings, Hanks Prefers To Explore Memories And Emotions. ?all Art Is An Escape To Somewhere You Want To Be Or A Feeling You Want To Have," Hanks Says. "people See Different Things In My Paintings Because We All Have Different Backgrounds And Feelings.? Hanks Highly Collected Nudes Convey An Introspective Solitude That Prompts The Viewer To Think About His Or Her Own Life And Path. ?women Occupy A Special Niche In My Sensitivity.

Estimated Price: $700 - $880

Description: River Roper by Norm Clasen - Edition Size: 195 - Giclee on Paper - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 16 x 29 Release Date: 9-2009 ???.It?s said that one picture is worth a thousand words?.this is an apt description for every image shot by famed photographer Norm Clasen. As a free-lance photographer, Clasen has traveled the globe recording man, nature, and the world around us. With a very successful career spanning four decades, the photographer-artist is passionate about his work. Clasen?s images have been featured in numerous magazines in this country, as well as in European publications. One the most exciting periods in his career was being chosen as a photographer for the world-famous "Marlboro Man? advertising campaign for twelve years, considered to be one of the most recognizable images of all time. As a result of Clasen working with many ranchers and becoming friends with them while shooting the Marlboro images, the artist began his love affair with the iconic West. The artist?s interests began focusing on the magnificent horses that roam the ranches and plains. Marveling at their sheer power, grace, and beauty, Clasen attempts to capture the magic of the animals when in full flight as the dust swirls around them and their manes float through the air. Few landscapes are too challenging for Clasen ? filming in dust, rain or snow and pushing light to its limit have resulted in this photographer-artist creating some of his most memorable and dramatic images. Clasen?s work usually reflects natural elements as the main focus using 35mm equipment in either film or digital formats. In some cases, he enhances the photographs to create an artistic aura, taking on a painting-like feeling, but maintaining their photographic quality. Always striving to reflect the timeless nature of the West, Clasen produces photographs that are at-once classic, but created with modern technology, and yet evoking softer, grainy images that appear to echo from the past. Clasen refers to this aspect of his work as "artography? and believes it is a new and evolving genre for the art market. Norm and his wife, Laura, reside on a ranch in Colorado with horses and Max the Wonderdog. With a magnificent landscape to call home, the photographer and his wife are forever grateful to be surrounded with the ever-changing beauty of nature. Join Norm Clasen as he records a world that never disappoints and offers a new vista at every turn.

Morning Vigil by Martin Grelle

Lot 1894S: Morning Vigil by Martin Grelle

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $190 - $240

Description: Morning Vigil by Martin Grelle - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 12-2011 ???.Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting, or the American cowboy in the dusty cattle-working pens, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle studies diligently to portray the diverse cultures of the American West accurately and with sensitivity. His knowledge of the cowboy?s way of life, gained from his time spent horseback on ranches during the annual Cowboy Artists of America?s (CAA) trail ride, as well as the time spent with local ranchers and friends, is evident in his contemporary cowboy paintings. The many hours spent in museums, at historical re-enactments, in visiting with experts on Native American culture, and reading from his extensive library, have helped him to bring his vision of the Plains Indian culture to life on canvas. Grelle was born when his family lived on a small farm a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he still calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, including many of Grelle?s close friends. They all enjoy getting together to "talk art?, critique each other?s work, and exchange ideas. Many of them, including Grelle, teach annual workshops through a local art facility known as the Bosque Conservatory, which has begun to have a national presence. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment. The artist?s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With excellent guidance from James Boren, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Since then, Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek subject matter for his work. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist?s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative. For more than 30 years Grelle has made a career of his art, and has won awards of both regional and national importance. In 1995, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, and he is one of the younger active members. He is currently serving his second term on the board of directors for that organization, and participates in the Annual CAA Exhibition and Sale at the Phoenix Art Museum each October. Grelle won the CAA People?s Choice Award in 2002, for his painting Monarchs of the North, and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award in 2008, for his painting Newlyweds. He has also been privileged to participate in other major juried shows across the United States. Included in that list are the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which he has participated in each year since 1995, the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition & Sale at the Autry National Center, and the inaugural Quest for the West Exhibition & Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum. Awards of merit include the Prix de West Purchase Award, which he won in 2002 for his painting Teller of Tales, and again in 2005, for his painting Two Coups, making him one of only 6 artists to have won the top award twice. Grelle has also won twice the Nona Jean Hulsey Ramsey Buyer?s Choice Award at Prix de West, first in 2004 with Signs Along the Snake, and again in 2006, for Dust in the Distance. The artist is represented by Overland Gallery of Fine Art, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a one-man show is held for Grelle each March. The 2008 show marked Grelle?s 20th anniversary one-man show with the gallery. The artist has been profiled in a number of publications, including the magazines Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Persimmon Hill, American Cowboy, Western Horseman, Wild West, and InformArt. His work has also been showcased on the covers of many of these publications. Grelle says humbly, "I thank God for the ability and the opportunities He has given me, and I hope I can continue to grow and learn more with each finished painting. I am honored by everyone who collects my work, and I will always strive to create artwork worthy of their attention, and their investment.?
