About this Item

This Danish-born American artist grew so enamored with the American West, having worked ranches and even chased Pancho Villa back across the border, that he became a modern recreation of Frederic Remington, painting Western scenes and illustrating Western books, calendars and magazines. Original blue ballpoint signed and inscribed sketch, 1p, 10" X 5", n.p. [Phoeniz, AZ], 1960 March 5. Near fine. On heavy lined stock, Wieghorst sketches a Southwestern-style small adobe house with a covered porch, large chimney, separate small oven in front, fence and tree at left. A man in large sombrero squats in the shade of the porch, his horse resting nearby. Along the bottom, the artist writes: "To The Campbells with many thanks for a lovely party. / Mae & Olaf Wieghorst / March 5th / 1960." Several others (doubtless fellow party attendees) sign the verso with various February and March 1960 dates and add comments. An outstanding example of this famed 20th century artist's work.
