“These two Northern Plains warriors are following a trail that was probably a game trail originally,” Terpning relates about the painting. “Since they are using a pack horse, they are no doubt traveling a considerable distance. Snow melt or heavy rains could sometimes produce such a volume of water that it wiped away everything in its path. This landscape has been changed by the destructive forces of the water and what used to be a natural bridge of sorts has been completely washed away, so that these men must seek another route to reach their destination.”
This painting, and over 80, others will be on display in Howard Terpning: Tribute to the Plains People, a retrospective museum show opening May 12, 2012 at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles, CA. Collectors will only have through July 1, 2012 to view this once-in-a-lifetime hanging of this many Terpning originals. Truly, by visiting this show, you will understand just why we refer to Howard as a “national treasure”. And, lucky visitors will also have the chance to see just how exceptional a Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition of Howard Terpning’s work can be.
About the only downside of Terpning’s success is the lack of availability of his original work to even the most serious collector. It has been through our Fine Art Edition program that a broader, albeit select, audience has been able to enjoy the beauty, though exacting reproduction, of Howard’s work. Broken Trail is no exception. This 34” x 23” canvas captures every detail and nuance of this master’s original work. Broken Trail will be made available to collectors in an edition of only 125.
Make your plans to see the Autry’s upcoming Terpning retrospective this May or June and don’t wait until then to purchase Broken Trail. By spring, this edition will be hanging on the walls of a lucky few collectors and like many previous Terpning’s editions, it will be sold out and unavailable to even the most serious collector.
