[From Introduction In recent years there have been but few visionary collectors to focus their acquisitive energies on the art of the American West. Rarer still are those whose breadth of interest has been encyclopedic and whose eye for quality unquestioned. But there are a few, and among them is John Eulich. His remarkable collection, showcasing some of the finest work by the most highly regarded historic western painters, will now find its way onto the auction block. This sale represents the culmination of twenty years of collecting and a remarkable opportunity for the marketplace.After John Eulich acquired his first western paintingin 1978, building his collection became one of his life's primary passions. He decided early on to attempt an encyclopedic assemblage of western art based on artistic excellence. Consequendy, his was a dynamic collection, subject to constant upgrades. He was not simply thrilled by the past and excited by the creative forces of another generation?he was also graced with an ability to savor quality in art.And, along with his desire to possess came a dedication to share with others, with the result that his collection was exhibited in thirteen prominent American museums over a four year period from September 1991 to January 1995.Mr. Eulich has recognized the unique essence of our western imagery and has sought to find meaning in its artistic traditions as well as its iconography, symbology and mythology. He has found much, including fascinating equivalents in westernhistorical experience with his own personal, spiritual and business life . elements that are likewise reflected in the artistic legacy of the western land and its people. What will be offered in the sale of the Eulich collection is a panoply of fine paintingsfrom a veritable who's who in American western art of the 19th and early 20th centuries. It represents the high points of approxinutely one hundred years of western art. beginning with the early explorer-artists of the 1830s , and culminating with the pictorial records of painters who celebrated the final chapters of the frontier West and its epochal history.
