A band of Sioux warriors has come upon a wagon loaded down with contraband in Howard Terpningís award-winning "Whiskey Smugglers." The strangers talk and smile with their mouths but their eyes and their hearts are hard. The white manís whiskey was a curse upon the People. It induced an initial euphoric state like that experienced during a sacred vision quest. But there were no spiritual revelations . . . nothing at all but drunkenness and despair. The white manís empty promises and treaties could rob the People of their land. His whiskey could steal their souls.

"Whiskey Smugglers" won the Gold for Gouache at the 1998 Cowboy Artists of America show. It was one of five awards Howard took home that evening including two other Gold awards, the CA Award and to top it off, Best of Show. "Guarding the Lodge," which was released last August and is Sold Out at Publisher, won one of those Gold awards.

Like "Guarding the Lodge," "Whiskey Smugglers" is part of a special series paying tribute to the works Terpning created on paper. Reproduced on the finest archival watercolor paper, this Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition represents a distinct and impressionable aspect of the art of Howard Terpning as it was meant to be seen. At 36" x 24", it is an impressive work of art and as an edition of only 85, it is one of his most limited.

Collectors that own "Offerings to the Little People" and "Guarding the Lodge" should consider that by adding "Whiskey Smugglers" to their collection would give them the trifecta of images that swept every award category (except sculpture) at the 1998 Cowboy Artist of America show.




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.
