First Artist of the Year

(October 4, 1861 – December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry.

A Key to Artist/Picture Study (I think)

Three main ingredients necessary for great art:

It must be a thing of beauty
It must require great skill
It must express a worthy idea (worthy-good and deserving respect. Idea-thought or picture in your mind, a plan, purpose)
