Artist:Howard Terpning Title: Council Mediator Image Size: 23" w x 38” h. Edition: Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition to 85 with COA. Medium: Giclée on Fine Art Paper. About the Art: We are of the firm conviction that 100 years from now, Howard Terpning will be looked upon as one of the most important painters of our time. Had we made that statement 30 years ago when we first introduced his work, we would already be one-third of the way in proving that to be true.
Howard is the most renowned and honored Western artist painting today and, quite simply, a national treasure. His awards are so numerous and he is honored with them so often that any listing would requires an updating every few months. It would include the highest prizes awarded in Western art: the National Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Prix de West; the Hubbard Art Award for Excellence; Eiteljorg Award for Excellence in American Western Art; the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Autry National Center and more Gold and Silver awards from the Cowboy Artists of America than any other artist.
The secondary market for Terpning’s fine art editions is unlike any other. The Giclee Canvas of The Force of Nature Humbles All Men has sold for over $27,000.00 from an initial release price of $2,450.00. Ownership of one of his originals has surpassed the $1,900,000.00 mark.
Yet, for all his laurels Howard Terpning is a man of honor and humility. Acclaim is not the reason collectors eagerly anticipate the arrival of each new work. They treasure something more valuable than awards, something of both personal meaning and objective worth: a desire to keep alive the heritage and culture of Native Americans through the power of art itself.
“The American Indian fascinates me,” says Terpning. “The more I study them, the more intrigued I become. Their culture and artifacts, their horses, the way they looked … there’s always another story waiting to be told. I feel privileged to be one of their storytellers. I could paint two lifetimes without running out of subject matter. I think it’s important to tell the story of the Plains Indians because their history is our history … part of our heritage. The history of the West is the only history America has that is uniquely our own.”
