Artist: Howard Terpning Title: Tribute to the Plains People Size: 14"w x 12"h. Edition: Trade Hardcover 184 pages, 126 illustrations. Release Date: 5/2012 About the Book: TERPNING: Tribute to the Plains People is the most comprehensive collection of Terpning art to date, with over 120 images and 184 oversized pages. The core 90 images from the Autry show are supplemented with over 30 additional paintings personally selected by the artist for this volume. This personal selection of his art from over 35 years, written by fellow Western artist and author Harley Brown, is published on the occasion of his one-man show at The Autry National Center in Los Angeles opening May 2012.
The text by fellow artist Harley Brown provides a unique artist’s view of Terpning’s oeuvre through discussions of color, composition, inspiration and sheer talent. This is no text book on Plains Indians. Nor is it a “how-to-paint” book but rather an entertaining and informative look at this great master’s work. Once you’ve looked at this book, you will never look at Terpning’s paintings in the same way again. Four chapter essays and over 100 image captions combine the background of the artist with a “how-to look at the painting” perspective that will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of any artist’s work you view.
It’s a Greenwich Workshop Press book. For the past 20 years, Greenwich Workshop Press has set the gold standard in fine art coffeetable books. Each stage of the book preparation from art selection to color proof approval, is done in conjunction with the artist. The digital art files were prepared by our master photographer who has over 25 years of experience in fine art reproduction. The printing is supervised by our book director. TERPNING is printed on a grade A Japanese art paper and bound in real cloth.
