Watercolorist William Matthews has long been hailed as the preeminent painter of the American West. In this new collection of 180 staggering paintings, he captures the full range of western experience: endless skies, high plains, the last working cowboys, the Navajo the mystique of the Living Desert. Steeped in introspection and connected to land, tradition, and identity, Matthews' work evokes a place that is authentic, anachronistic, and dynamic. An essay by award-winning writer Annie Proulx provides insight into both the ranching and the art-making life, resulting in a glorious homage to this ancient terrain some of the last untamed wilderness in America.
