Be one of the select few to own "Howard Terpning: A Tribute to the Plains People" – The Collector’s Edition. This autographed and numbered book comes slip-cased in a rich olive bookcloth, inset with a stamped leather label and is lined with acid-free paper. The book is paired with The Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition of the award-winning "Traders Among the Crow." This set includes a complimentary DVD of the new documentary "Howard Terpning: Portrait of a Storyteller."

A Special Matching-Number Set

"Traders Among the Crow" received the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Exceptional Artistic Merit when it was unveiled at the 2012 Masters of the American West Exhibition. Not only did the painting hang in the Tribute retrospective in the spring, 2012, but its creation is the centerpiece of new documentary on Howard’s life.

“The period in this scene is 1848–1850,” explains Howard. “These free traders have left the large fur companies and are working on their own. They have entered the edge of a Crow camp with many trade goods to entice the inhab-itants to exchange buffalo robes for gun powder, lead, knives, axes, blankets, tobacco and the various other items displayed on the ground. They use a wagon to carry their goods and perhaps for transportation because the man with the glengarry hat and a cane has an injured leg. (Wagons were used on the Santa Fe Trail as early as 1821 so by the late 1840s they could be found in many out of the way places throughout the Plains.) Howard made the group small to give the scene a sense of intimacy. Of course, there is no telling how many people are surrounding the group pictured.”

The Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition "Traders Among the Crow" is one of our oversized MasterWork™ Canvases at 35” w x 50” h. The edition is signed by Howard Terpning and its number will match that found in the slip-cased book.

The slipcase for this Collector’s Edition is designed and hand-crafted by artisans here in the United States with archival materials. This beautiful, yet durable, presentation makes it ideal for display. The book itself, from the first printing of Terpning: Tribute to the Plains People, contains a signing page that was incorporated into the interior during the binding process. This signing page makes this edition unique from the rest of the printing and is signed by Howard Terpning and numbered to match your Fine Art Canvas Edition.

The set is made complete by the accompanying copy of the DVD "Howard Terpning: Portrait of a Story." Over the course of this documentary, you’ll have the chance to watch the painting of your Fine Art Edition come alive.

"Terpning: Tribute to the Plains People" – The Collector’s Edition is a triumphant presentation of a spectacular career and essential for any fan or collector.

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.
