Howard Terpning Where Spirits Dwell

" WHERE SPIRITS DWELL "
Howard Terpning

150 s/n Giclee Canvas
35" x 25"
$1250

To the Native American, a spiritual force was the source of all life and everything in nature had a soul, or a spirit, independent of its physical being. Their entire world was connected spiritually, with the physical and the mystical living side by side. This spirituality was the fundamental nature of the Plains Indian and the expanse of the West and the grandeur of its landscape only enforced this notion.

“It is important to show the American Indian as he appears in his natural surroundings,” says Howard Terpning. “He lives with Mother Earth, and his spirituality is bound to his environment. Many of my paintings are inspired by something in nature. The thing I look for in a landscape is how it can be dramatized to the best advantage in the painting.”

Howard Terpning Prospectors-among-the-blackfeet

" PROSPECTORS AMONG THE BLACKFEET "
Howard Terpning

110 s/n Giclee Canvas
29" x 37"
$1450


A New York Times article on Western art and the annual Coeur d’Alene Art Auction in 2007 had this to say about the artist: “Howard Terpning just may be the most successful living American artist you’ve never heard of.” The auctioneer Peter Stremmel concurred. “Everyone is after Terpning’s work. They see him as the next Russell or Remington,” (referring to Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, the two most famous Western art painters from the end of the 19th century). Several of Terpning’s paintings had already broken the million dollar mark and his record sale price has climbed since to $1,456,000. Additionally, it’s getting harder to find a serious art collector who doesn’t recognize his name.
“In Prospectors Among the Blackfeet, Blackfeet warriors find evidence of intrusion by white men: a prospector’s gold pan and other debris carelessly left behind in a shallow stream,” says the artist. “The Blackfeet were among the most implacable in their enmity toward white trespassers, first the beaver trappers and later the prospectors. And for good reason. Blackfeet had only to look at their neighbors, the Sioux and Cheyenne, where the discovery of gold in the treaty-protected Black Hills led to the final, crushing military campaigns against them.”

Howard Terpning  Trail Along The Backbone

" TRAIL ALONG THE BACKBONE "
Howard Terpning

135 s/n Giclee Canvas
36" x 44"
$2450


The Blackfoot people referred to the Rocky Mountains as “the backbone of the world.” From the foothills of Rockies to the East extend the Great Plains. To the West, the Rockies ultimately drop off into the Pacific Ocean. Add in the amazing length of the Rockies from North to South and it is not hard to see that from the Blackfoots’ limited perspective at that time, they weren’t that far off the mark. There were trails that went across and over the Rockies at various places. In all probability they were originally game trails that were then used by man. This painting represents such a trail being used by three Blackfoot Warriors.
When we called Howard to let him know that we were thinking about publishing Trail Along the Backbone he mentioned that our timing was fortuitous because he would see the original again in a few days. It is part of the collection of the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, GA. Howard was going there to be honored with the Booth Museum Lifetime Achievement Award. The Booth houses the largest permanent exhibition space for western art in the U.S. Their collection also includes three other Terpning originals, River Crow, Legend of Geronimo and On the Brink.
