With over 120 full color paintings, this book is the most comprehensive collection of Terpning’s work to date. The text, by fellow artist Harley Brown, provides a unique artist’s view of Terpning’s oeuvre through discussions of his color, composition, inspiration and talent.

Quite simply, Howard Terpning is one of the most lauded painters of Western art and considered by many to be a national treasure. His awards are so numerous, and so frequent, that any listing is quickly outdated. He is known as the Storyteller of the Native American because of his devotion and respect for his subject matter, almost exclusively the Plains Indian.

Born in Illinois and educated at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the American Academy of Art, Terpning first gained attention through his powerful illustrations on Time and Newsweek covers. Film fans praised his movie posters for such classics as "The Sound of Music," "Dr. Zhivago" and the 1967 re-issue of "Gone with the Wind." But his love of the West and Native American traditions fueled his transition to fine art.

“The American Indian fascinates me,” says Terpning. “I feel privileged to be one of their storytellers. I think it’s important to tell the story of the Plains Indians because their history is our history . . . part of our heritage. The history of the West is the only history America has that is uniquely our own.”

The late Fred A. Myers, director of the Gilcrease Museum said of Terpning, “He is simply the best and best-known artist doing Western subjects at this point. He is among a very small group of painters of the West in the late 20th century whose art will still be hanging in museums and appreciated a hundred years from now.” His work has been exhibited around the world and collected in museums including the Smithsonian, the National Portrait Gallery and the Phoenix Art Museum. Terpning’s paintings now sell for over one million dollars.

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 Art’s 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 — 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 artist’s 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.
