Ken Payne Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1938 - d. 2012

Sculptor Ken Payne is famous for Western-themed bronzes depicting Native Americans, cowboys, buffaloes, and wolves in action. Payne was influenced by the Greek and Roman masters, wanting to capture that same majesty in an historic frontier setting. Being born on a 24,000-acre ranch in New Mexico in 1938, he created artworks in his spare time, building a portfolio of Payne animal sculptures for sale. Eventually he went on to mentor young artists, teaching them stories of the disappearing Old West as he sculpted.

Sculptor Ken Payne became a world-renowned, influential bronze sculptor, selling pieces such as Where Smoke Talks (1994) and Stolen Medicine (1992). Ken Payne sculptures have sold in past years in excess of $4,000 each. Indulge your inner cowboy with wild animal sculptures for sale online and at auction.

            Est: $1,000 - $2,000

            Property from a Private Collector, Philadelphia and Hilton Head Island Description: Ken Payne, Misery Loves Company, 1992, Painted Bronze, signed, dated and numbered 8/35 on the base, depicting two horses in winter, on a 2 1/4 in. swiveling wood base. Ken Payne was an American sculptor best known for his bronze works depicting the landscapes and history of the Southwest and plains regions of the United States. His sculptures of buffalo, wolves, Native Americans, pioneers, and cowboys often capture a moment of action in some larger narrative, bringing to life an idealized sense of the historic frontier of the Old West. In this way, Payne’s work bears resemblance to the paintings and sculptures of Frederic Remington. Born in New Mexico, Payne became a pilot in 1956, making art in his spare time.

            Est: -

            Ken Payne (1938 - 2012) "Thunder on the Ridges" Bronze Sculpture. Storm clouds of war began to gather rapidly in December of 1864. The brave is riding a captured horse the Indian way. He is a mighty warrior approved by the war society to wear the buffalo-horned headdress that symbolizes power, as does the lightening bolt down the neck and shoulder of the steed. The sign above the U.S. brand shows he's a leader of a war party. He has been on many horse raids as shown by hoof prints on the rump of his horse. This Sioux warrior adds much to the sound of Thunder On The Ridges. Born into the ranching heritage of the Southwest, Ken Payne began his artistic career as a painter, focusing on the landscapes, cowboys, and native peoples of the Southwest. As a lifelong student of history, Ken spent many hours researching stories about the West. In the late 1970’s he decided to turn his talents toward Bronze Sculpture and for more than four decades produced close to 150 sculptures, depicting the action, danger, and even the humor of many a frontier situation. His sculptures have been collected nationally and internationally by both private and corporate collectors. Ken was respected in the art world as a talented sculptor, painter and businessman, establishing bronze casting foundries in Lincoln County, NM, as well as Arizona and Colorado. Ken also was the founder of Mountain Trails Gallery, Inc. where he established fine art galleries in Santa Fe, NM and Sedona, AZ. People came from all over the country and the world to hear him tell his stories as he sculpted into bronze the history of the disappearing American west.

            Est: -

            Ken Payne (1938 - 2012) "Runs On The Wind" Bronze Sculpture. Some of the Northern Plains Indians were noted for their speed and stamina as runners-often competing with other tribes with much fanfare. Some were very sure of themselves and their speed-like when John Colton was stripped and told to run for his life. The game was to see who could kill him first. John had a little more at stake than just winning a race. So he made his escape. A fast runner was highly respected. This is notable in the names of many warriors like Running Bird, Running Rabbit, Running Wolf, and Running Weasel to name a few. A name such as "Runs On The Wind" would indicate grace as well as speed. An antelope headdress would be fitting for such a very swift runner not only as an ornament, but also as he believed to receive the spirit of the animal.

            Est: -

            WOW!! Ken Payne (1938 - 2012) "Sound of Music" Bronze Sculpture. "Captain Howard Standbury led a survey party to Salt Lake in 1849. On July 19 he wrote in his journal - "We Passed today boxes, bonnets, trunks, wagon wheels, cooking utensils, and in fact, almost every article of household furniture were found along the prairie. The settlers by the time they reached South Pass (Half Way Point) on the Oregon Trail. Their wagons and oxen were worn out. Especially if their wagons were over leaded." In this sculpture the broken wagon wheel and a piano tell the story. I have taken the viewpoint of two Sioux Warriors who are examining this strange contraption. When the keys are touched, the ponies and their riders are at attention to the foreign sounds on the quiet prairie. I reckon a piano would not be hauled with the legs on. However with a little artist license I see the poor lady insisting on playing it just one more time before abandoning her prized possession to the prairie."
