9781560374466: Charles Fritz, the Complete Collection: 100 Paintings Illustrating the Journals of Lewis and Clark

Charles Fritz: 100 Paintings Illustrating the Journals of Lewis and Clark unites exquisite Western art with one of our nation's greatest epics.

The result of a decade of comprehensive research and on-location painting, this expanded collection of 100 paintings depicts the triumphs and travails of the Corps of Discovery's two-and-a-half-year trek through unknown territory to the Pacific Ocean and back between 1804 and 1806.

Although several members of the Corps of Discovery kept journals, an artist did not accompany the expedition. Unlike almost every expedition since, there had been no one to visually document the unique people, landscapes, animals, and plants never before seen by Americans living in the East.

With artistry and a passion for historical accuracy, Charles Fritz, one of the nation's most respected Western artists, brings the Journals of Lewis and Clark to life, telling this remarkable American story visually and for the first time allowing us to experience what the Corps saw on their historic journey.

His work has been featured in many magazines, periodicals, and books, including Donald Hagerty's Leading the West: One Hundred Contemporary Painters and Sculptors and Canyon de Chelly: 100 Years of Painting and Photography. Fritz resides in Billings, Montana, with his wife, Joan, and their sons, Isaac and Erik.

Review:

If Lewis and Clark had selected an artist to accompany them on their historic journey, no doubt they would have chosen a painter with a keen eye and an adventurous spirit---someone like Charles Fritz. ---B. Byron Price, director, Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, University of Oklahoma

One of the most frequently asked questions on the planning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition concerns Jefferson's failure to send a professional artist with the Corps. Now, thanks to a carefully researched and historically accurate series of paintings by Montana artist Charles Fritz, Americans have the opportunity to see what Lewis and Clark observed, what they looked like, and the people they met on their way to the Pacific. This is a rare chance to step back in time and appreciate Lewis and Clark's experiences from 1804 to 1806. ---Stephen E. Ambrose, author of the best-selling book Undaunted Courage

With the completion of Charles Fritz's monumental project, a huge void has been filled! Through the eyes of a gifted and dedicated American artist, we now have a view of the world of Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery. This book will hold a special place in the William Clark family library, and it is a must for any serious student of Lewis and Clark or anyone who appreciates the adventure and magic of early Western exploration. ---Peyton C. Bud Clark, great, great, great grandson of Captain William Clark
