About this title


As James H. Nottage writes in the preface, “The Gerald Peters Collection of Western Art has a range that expresses many different trends, techniques and schools in the art history of the American West. Do not look at the painted canvas for images of dress and equipment as in James Walker’s brilliant oil Roping Wild Horses. Observe pieces such as Thomas Moran’s Green River, Wyoming and think of the painter as a visionary image maker, for the painter’s realm has done much to romanticize our perceptions of the American West.” 

These paintings were the first visual communications of the vast grandeur of the West and the wild beauty of its inhabitants. Featuring 37 artists, including John James Audubon, Albert Bierstadt, Karl Bodmer, Henry Farny, Alfred Jacob Miller, Thomas Moran, Frederick Remington, and many others.
