Olaf Wieghorst(1899-1988)
Who is Olaf Wieghorst?
At nine, artist Olaf Wieghorst performed under the stage name, Little Olaf-The Miniature Acrobat. At 14, too tall to work under the moniker, he left the entertainment world to work on a stock farm where he honed his riding skills and started to paint. In 1918, he traveled to New York and made his way west by enlisting in the U.S. Cavalry. During this time, he continued to build his skill as a painter. Returning to New York in 1923, artist Olaf Wieghorst became a mounted policeman, rode the rodeo circuit, and sold his western paintings.

By 1942, his popularity allowed him to return west and paint full time. Olaf Wieghorst's prints and paintings include works commissioned by cowboy legends Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Some of his artwork is displayed in the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Discover other fascinating animal painting for sale on line and at auction.

    Auction Date: Sep 11, 2021

    Estimate: $0 - $0

    Description: Olaf Carl Wieghorst (1899 - 1988) "Long Walk of the Navajos" Lithograph. Born in Viborg, Denmark, Olaf Wieghorst was a child acrobatic performer from the age of nine when he began appearances at Tivoli Theater in Copenhagen and later toured Europe. He also learned horseback riding working on a stock farm, and horses became a major focus of his admiration and later his painting. In 1918, he arrived in the United States, having worked as a cabin boy on a steamer. He served in the 5th U.S. Cavalry on the Mexican border in the days of Pancho Villa. He later recalled a favorite horse from that period and said that riding through El Paso in 1921, the horse fell on his ankle and broke it. The outfit was heading to Douglas, Arizona, and not wanting to be left behind with his injury, he stayed on the horse which carried him all the way through the New Mexico desert on one of the hottest days of the year. The horse died during the night, having expended all his energy on saving Wieghorst. He later wrote that when the Cavalry discarded the use of horses, "they took the soul out of that great branch of the service" ("Widening Horizons").

    Auction Date: Jul 11, 2021

    Watercolor on Paper

    Biography: Acclaimed by critics as the outstanding contemporary Western artist, Olaf Wieghorst earned these accolades during a lifetime of observing, handling and painting horses and the West. Olaf was born to Karl and Anna Wieghorst on April 30, 1899, in the village of Viborg, Jutland, Denmark. He was only 19 years old when he came to New York on December 31, 1918 aboard an old Danish steamer. He had only $1.25 in his pocket and spoke no English. For better or for worse, Olaf had come to America to stay. Olaf joined the United States Calvary and requested duty on the Mexican border. This was his dream come true; he was going West! After the military, Olaf drifted and worked as a cowboy. "I have been observing horses for so many years that I guess I've begun to think like one. That's what I mean when I say that the horse has been my greatest teacher. Horses have been my companions under nearly all possible conditions." Here was a man deeply in love with the West and its people and its way of life. Here was a man possessed with the talent to create on canvas this love. His paintings are in the great private collections of Western art including those of Clint Murchison, Leonard Firestone, Barry Goldwater, Earl Adams, Sam Campbell, Jack Goodman, Read Mullan, C.R. Smith, Bruce Gelker, Fred Utter as well as The Eisenhower Library, Abilene, Kansas, and the Whitney Gallery, Cody, Wyoming.

    Note

    Olaf Wieghorst is best known for his Western genre paintings, which often feature American Indians, cowboys, and horses. He travelled widely throughout the American West and Midwest working as a cowboy in New Mexico and Arizona. A self taught artist, he became very popular during his lifetime. President Ronald Reagan said of Wieghorst: ?From the opening of the American West until this present day, artists have sought to capture the rugged beauty, the drama and the romance of this unique part of our national heritage. None have been more successful than Olaf Wieghorst.? Today, Cajon, California is home to the Olaf Wieghorst Museum. The present painting, as well as Lot 37, are featured in the film Olaf Wieghorst: Painter of the American West, narrated by Rex Allen and produced by Roy Wieghorst (1978), which spotlights the artist's life and work.

    Olaf Carl Wieghorst (1899 - 1988) American

    Lot 90: Olaf Carl Wieghorst (1899 - 1988) American

    Auction Date: May 16, 2021

    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000

    Description: Olaf Carl Wieghorst (1899 - 1988) American.

    Watercolor on Paper.

    Measure 18 1/2"in H x 11 3/4"in W and 29"in H x 21 1/2"in W with frame.

    Acclaimed by critics as the outstanding contemporary Western artist, Olaf Wieghorst earned these accolades during a lifetime of observing, handling and painting horses and the West. Olaf was born to Karl and Anna Wieghorst on April 30, 1899, in the village of Viborg, Jutland, Denmark. He was only 19 years old when he came to New York on December 31, 1918 aboard an old Danish steamer. He had only $1.25 in his pocket and spoke no English. For better or for worse, Olaf had come to America to stay. Olaf joined the United States Calvary and requested duty on the Mexican border. This was his dream come true; he was going West! After the military, Olaf drifted and worked as a cowboy. "I have been observing horses for so many years that I guess I've begun to think like one. That's what I mean when I say that the horse has been my greatest teacher. Horses have been my companions under nearly all possible conditions." Here was a man deeply in love with the West and its people and its way of life. Here was a man possessed with the talent to create on canvas this love. His paintings are in the great private collections of Western art including those of Clint Murchison, Leonard Firestone, Barry Goldwater, Earl Adams, Sam Campbell, Jack Goodman, Read Mullan, C.R. Smith, Bruce Gelker, Fred Utter as well as The Eisenhower Library, Abilene, Kansas, and the Whitney Gallery, Cody, Wyoming.
