In our business, the saying “a picture tells a thousand words” is rather important. Does it follow then that an even bigger picture has a greater story to tell? When it comes to our MuseumEdition™ Giclée canvas, it certainly does.
R. Tom Gilleon is one of a handful of artists that can look back at 2009 as a year that all the hard work and persistence paid dividends. I don’t believe a month passed that an art magazine did not choose him for its cover, run a feature story or review a show. He was the 2009 Jackson Hole Arts Festival’s Feature Artist. In a year that that desirability and potential value drove the art market, owning one of Gilleon’s contemporary western paintings rose to the top of many collectors’ lists.
Of those works, his 60” x 120” paintings like Tribal Tripartite disappeared as quickly as he could paint them. While we haven’t published a Fine Art Edition quite that large (yet), at over six feet long and three feet high, our MuseumEdition™ Fine Art Giclée Canvas of Tribal Tripartite is perhaps the most significant fine art value in the market today.
To begin with, it is big and beautiful. At 37” x 74” you are looking at 2,738 square inches of the finest in contemporary art. It is designed, as many contemporary paintings are, to be presented in the gallery wrap format which means no frame cost is required to display the art.
There are only 15 fine art canvases in the MuseumEdition™, fewer than the number of originals at his one-man show in Jackson Hole last September where, good news/bad news, you would not have found an original for $2750.
Most importantly, it is an R. Tom Gilleon produced by The Greenwich Workshop.
“Tribes on the plains survived by forming alliances, not unlike the nation-states through history,” begins Tom. “The tipi was very universal in nature, as were the ways of the Plains Indians’ lives. You’d be hard pressed at a glance to know whether one or multiple tribes were present in a village and sometimes something as minor as an entrance flap representing the style of one tribe as opposed to another was needed to determine it. Tribal Tripartite is as much about the shared necessities and influences of Plains’ life as it is color and design.”
Throughout this Catalogue, on our website or at your Authorized Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Dealer you’ll find other MuseumEdition™ releases such as June Carey’s The Fullness of Time. Take note of the low editions on oversize MasterWork™ canvases from Alan Bean, William S. Phillips, Mian Situ, Z.S. Liang and Steve Hanks. Look also at the expanded selection of Fine Art Paper Giclée Editions being offered in this Catalogue. They represent a fine art value entirely their own.
