Winter has always been a brutal season on the plains of North Dakota. Skin Lodges provided little protection from the icy winds that blew down from the north. But the Mandans stayed warm in their comfortable homes of earth and wood. By 1750, the Mandans had acquired horses and buffalo hunting took on a great significances in their lives. Now they could lay up ample stores of meat to supplement the vegetables they grew and the heavy buffalo robes kept them warm in the blizreds.

Mandans attached special importantance to their horses. During winter days, the horses were loose-herded in the shelter of nearby cottonwood groves. At sundown, the prized buffalo horses were brought into lodges for warmth and security.

Tom Lovell
1909 - 1997 A Native American finding a Raggedy Ann doll on a lonely western road. A man teaching his blonde, gingham-dressed, settler wife how to shoot a rifle. A trio of Indians warming their hands over the chimney of a snow-buried cabin in an otherwise empty landscape. These are just three of the stories told through the art of Tom Lovell, considered by his peers one of the deans of Western art. But that’s not all. He was equally famous for his exciting and thought- provoking illustrations for such magazines as Life, The Saturday Evening Post and National Geographic—as well as his stirring images of sweeping Civil War battles which were considered so definitive that they were telecast as part of the famous Public Television documentary on the conflict and published in the accompanying best-selling book. Lovell was the first artist to win the National Academy of Western Art’s highest honor, the Prix de West, twice. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1974 and eventually named a Hall of Fame Laureate. In 1992, he was honored by both the National Academy of Western Art and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame with a Lifetime Achievement Award and a prestigious one-man retrospective show. He has left a lifetime of work that will influence, impress and instill emotion for years to come.
