About the Artist: The world of Western Art has lost a great talent and leader. Internationally known artist, Frank C.

Frank McCarthy was born in New York City in 1924. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City during the summers starting at the age of 14. He was a graduate of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York.
Frank McCarthy began his art career as a commercial illustrator. He painted illustrations for most of the paperback book publishers, magazines, movie companies, and advertisements. He created works that became posters for such movies as the James Bond series. Frank McCarthy's talents were highly sought after by art directors enabling him to work as a free lance illustrator for many years. His art career spanned over 50 years, beginning with a request for a western cover for a magazine by an art director. He left the world of commercial art in 1968, and began his fine art career after moving to Sedona, Arizona.
Frank McCarthy's dynamic paintings frequently featured the people of the west with a special emphasis on the Plains Indian, mountain men, and
cavalry that made up the lore and lure of the old west. Appropriately entitled "The Dean of Western Action Painters", Frank McCarthy's art was
unsurpassed for its motion, drama, and absolute attention to accuracy and detail. Highly collected, and frequently imitated, Frank McCarthy's works were treasured throughout the world as classic examples of contemporary Western Art.
