Howard Terpning - Council Regalia Personal Commission™ -  MASTERWORK PAPER EDITION Published by the Greenwich Workshop

"The Plains Indian reveled in finery and wore the best he had for ceremonial occasions. When not doing more immediate chores, the women spent untold hours decorating their husbandsí clothing and accoutrements with trade beads and natural items such as bear claws, feathers, quills and pieces of bone, often dyed in bright colors. War bonnets worn by three of these Blackfeet elders were usually reserved for special events. Not often were they worn into combat, where they might be lost in the fury of the fight and perhaps give an enemy some magical power over the rightful owner. The buffalo horn headdress was fairly common and gave the wearer an eerie appearance as he went rushing against an enemy, shouting a war cry calculated to chill his opponent to the bone. In some tribes the man who carried the lance into battle was burdened with a special responsibility not to retreat. For that reason, many warriors shunned the lance as a weapon." Ė Howard Terpning

Few artists and their work are relevant for a decade. Howard Terpning has remained so for the 30 years we have published his Fine Art Editions. Since we first issued his limited editions in 1980, Howard Terpning has set the bar in collecting Western art.

To commemorate this achievement, The Greenwich Workshop released a series of Personal Commission Prints that reflected his publishing program with us over the last 30 years. As Personal Commissions, each release was guaranteed to be a Sold-Out Edition, as the edition size is set by the number of orders we receive in the Commission Period.

In 1980, one of the first limited editions we issued with Howard was created from the mixed media original "The Spectators." Of the over 100 editions we have produced since then, "Council Regalia" would represent only the sixth fine art edition of a Terpning mixed media work.

Howard Terpning
Quite simply, Howard Terpning is one of the most lauded painters of Western art. His awards are so numerous and he is honored with them so often, that to list them would require changing the count every few months. To name three would be to cite the highest prizes awarded to Western art: countless awards from the Cowboy Artists of America, the Hubbard Art Award for Excellence, the National Academy of Western Artís Prix de West and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Autry National Center. Why such praise? Passion, compassion, devotion and respect for his subject matter, extraordinary talent in palette and brushstroke, an exceptional ability to evoke emotion both in his paintings and from those viewing them ó all this and more has made Terpning the "Storyteller of the Native American." Born in Illinois and educated at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the American Academy of Art, he first gained attention with his captivating advertising and story illustrations. Film fans praised his movie posters for such classics as The Sound of Music, Dr. Zhivago and the re-issue of Gone with the Wind. But his love of the West and Native American traditions saw his transition to fine art. Terpning is an Emeritus member of the Cowboy Artists of America, active for 22 years, during which time he was presented with a total of 41 awards. His book, The Art of Howard Terpning won the Wrangler "Outstanding Art Book" award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Terpning was recently honored with a one-man show at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, Indiana featuring 30 of the artistís most distinguished works where he was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. This career milestone was further celebrated with the publication of Spirit of the Plains People (2001, Greenwich Workshop Press). Terpning is the recipient of the Autry National Center, 2005 Masters of the American West Thomas Moran Memorial Award, given in recognition of exceptional artistic merit for painting.
