This feature-length film delivers an exciting American success story and great entertainment. At a preview screening an audience member was overheard, "After seeing this, people will realize that Frederick Remington was the Howard Terpning of his time and not the other way around."

"I believe that the collector who was lucky enough to have purchased the original of 'Traders Among The Crow' at the 2011 Masters of the American West show now owns what will be one of the most widely recognized Terpningís ever created. The movie does a fantastic job of merging the creation of this original work with the story of Howard Terpningís life and career; the creation of art and artist. It makes our Collectorís Edition all the more significant.

"Iíve known Howard Terpning my entire life. I learned more detail about what shaped Howard as a man and as an artist in an hour and a half than I would have thought possible: childhood western experiences, two separate calls to duty, the illustration years and his rise in western art. Certainly, Iíve been aware of these experiences but not with the same clarity and detail.

"As the filmmaker Douglas Thompson told me, 'This is a story about the American experience that could only happen here: the saga of the American Indian; an account of an inspirational American and a chronical of original and significant American art.' I couldnít agree more."

"To watch this film and then read the book is an inspiring experience."

- Scott Usher, Publisher The Greenwich Workshop


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.
