Howard Post Demo

Known for his paintings of cattle, cowboys, rodeo arenas and ranch-life executed with a unique aerial perspective and sun-drenched hues, Howard Post is an impressionist who portrays the contemporary West in a modern fashion. Post worked as a commercial artist until 1980 when he decided to paint what he knew best, Arizona's ranch traditions. Viewers of Howard Post's oils or pastels respond to a bird's-eye view of cattle clustered in a corral, cowboys perched on fence rails, or a distant ranch house. This higher perspective endows people and animals in the painting with stronger shapes and patterns. His work is defined by orderly, strong shadow patterns cast by the figures of cattle, cowboys, trees or fences.

Saturday, October 28, 2017 - 10:00 - 12:30 in the Bergman Theatre at the Booth Museum
