The West Observed: The Art of Howard Post

Through February 4, 2018 – Temporary Exhibition Gallery

After working as a commercial artist for a period, Howard Post decided in 1980 to paint the lifestyle he knew best – the Arizona ranch traditions and the Arizona landscape. Post is known for his unique aerial perspectives and modern, impressionistic viewpoint. A distant ranch house, cowboys sitting on fence rails, or cattle clustered in a corral are all subjects brought to life by Post’s keen imagination. His use of high perspectives renders people and animals in his works with exceptionally strong shapes and patterns, along with strong, orderly shadow patterns cast by the figures of cattle, cowboys, trees, or fences. This exhibition is organized by the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block.
