Wilson Hurley is one of America's foremost contemporary landscape artists. He has brought to his paintings his individual experiences, his career as a pilot, and his love of the Southwest. He works from his direct perceptions of nature, which are reflected on his canvas: vast expanses of sky, aerial views of the landscape, and personal involvement with his subject matter.
To commemorate his 20 year career as an artist, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center , with the cooperation of The Albuquerque Museum assembled a retrospective exhibition featuring some of Hurley's finest works which are presented in this volume.
Recently Wilson Hurley has completed, a series of heroic landscapes for the National Cowboy Hall of Fame that defy description in their majesty and interpretation of the American West.

Wilson Hurley had successful careers in the military, as a lawyer, an engineer and a banker before deciding at the age of 40 to paint full time. As a youth, he aspired to excel artistically, but was not encouraged by his family to pursue a career in art. Today, Wilson Hurley is a painter of immense scope. His work is highly sought after and the Albuquerque artist is recognized as one of America's premier landscapists. For Hurley, the vistas of pure landscape that still exist in the American West and other parts of the world represent a beauty of form, color, light and order. Nature offers him an array of emotions to be dramatically captured on his canvases.
