Red Rock Crossing, Northwest Montana, 1850
by Z.S. Liang

These Piegan Blackfeet Warriors are returning to their encampment. As they approach Red Rock Falls they stop to share a story of the Red Rock Crossing passed down from a revered tribal elder. This spectacular vista was protected from development by President Taft in 1910 and is now a jewel of Glacier National Park. The Blackfeet Reservation adjoins the Park and is home to over 8,000 Blackfeet Native Americans.

The majestic 54 x 38 original painting by Z.S. Liang sold at the 2009 Jackson Art Auction at a record price. Only a handful of collectors will hang this historic fine art edition in their home for a fraction of that price. Ask an authorized Greenwich Workshop dealer about availability.

Grandpa's Blessing
by Z.S. Liang

Z.S. Liang continues to be one of the most important artists painting the history of the American West today. His track record of sold out original shows and Fine Art Editions attest to the regard for the painter today and the perception of the potential for his work tomorrow. He has a particular knack for portraying intimate details of Native American life, even when his canvases are epic in scale.

“Since early in the 17th century,” begins Liang, “when the horse was introduced to the American Indian on the northern Plains, their life was changed forever. The use of the horse for buffalo hunting made the hunt much more efficient and provided the people with a rich bounty. This exuberant scene shows a summer day in the Blackfeet band camp during the 1870s, after the buffalo scouts have located a large herd nearby. The men gather to ready their buffalo horses, while women excitedly prepare packhorses, travois and meat bags for the coming chase! With this excitement also comes concern, for running the wild herds over the broken country of the Western prairies held a high degree of danger for the mounted hunter. In the painting, a grandfather ties an eagle feather on his grandson’s horsetail as a blessing of safety before the run begins.”

The original of Grandpa’s Blessing is a substantial work, with a great deal of its impact coming from its size, intimate relationships portrayed on an epic scale. So, it would only be fitting that we reproduce it in our largest Fine Art format, a MuseumEdition Giclée Canvas. However, we will only be producing 12 pieces in this 42” x 61” size, so don’t take long to decide. With an edition of only 35, the 22” x 32” Giclée Canvas certainly will disappear quickly as well.
