Frank Tenney Johnson and the American West

Melissa Webster

In 1904, Field and Stream sent Frank Tenney Johnson (1874-1939) to the Rockies and the Southwest. It was on this journey that Johnson established his distinctive style and discovered the subject matter on which he would draw throughout his life. He became a painter of the world of Indians and cowboys from the Wyoming Rockies to the exotic canyons and cliffs of New Mexico and Arizona, and was considered the foremost painter of the West, recognized for picking up where Remington and Russell left off.

Bierstadt's West

Gerald L. Carr

As an artist, Albert Bierstadt was concerned more with communicating his image of the West to the American public than with following changing styles in the art world. For him, the immensity of the Rocky Mountains could find appropriate expression only on large canvases. Despite their size, and the immensity of terrain represented, he also managed to include a lavish amount of detail, particularly in his foregrounds. As a consequence, he was often criticized in later years for overstatement, for combining several paintings into one canvas, sometimes from different perspectives. When he did not lose sight of the whole in his efforts to combine large vistas and accurate amounts of detail, the impact of his work could be universalizing.

Willard Nash

Willard Nash

Appropriating the Cézanne-inspired principles of fragmented form and shifting planes, Willard Nash made these stylistic qualities his own by incorporating this inspiration with his personal vision of the Southwest. He was the most technically accomplished and intellectually influential member of Los Cinco Pintores, a group of early Santa Fe modernists united by a desire to experiment with cubism, fauvism, and expressionism.

Four authors, including staff of the Gilcrease Museum and one of Stone's grandsons, provide insight into the artist's biography, his carving techniques, his sources of inspiration, and his legacy as an Oklahoma artist. Referring to himself as a ""folklorist in wood,"" Stone carved his philosophy of life into his works, creating stories that glowed with universal truths and resonated with his own personality.

Forging a Nation

Kimberly Roblin

When the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence and created a new nation – the United States of America - few colonists-turned-citizens could foresee the great struggles that lay before it in the centuries to come. Forging a Nation explores those struggles—the history of the US—as told through art, artifacts, and archival materials that illuminate some three hundred years of a shared cultural experience.
