Howard Terpning - CHIEF JOSEPH RIDES TO SURRENDER -  LIMITED EDITION PRINT Published by the Greenwich Workshop

When "Chief Joseph Rides to Surrender" was released in 1982, it was the first Fine Art Edition to contain all the elements that would become hallmarks of a Howard Terpning classic: superior design, impeccable craftsmanship and insight into the power of the human spirit. It was one of the first of Terpning’s originals to reside in a museum collection.

This is a must have Fine Art Edition for the serious Terpning collector. Only "The Forces of Nature Humble All Men" commands a higher price on the secondary market. Bev Doolittle’s "Pintos" is the only other offset-lithograph fine art edition to trade in this price range.

The agony of defeat is powerfully rendered in this painting of the great Nez Perce Chief, Joseph, on his way to surrender to army troops in the foothills of the Bear Paw Mountains, only about thirty miles short of the Canadian border. It was here that Joseph made his famous speech: “I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed . . . . The old men are all killed . . . . It is cold and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills and have no blankets, no food; no one knows where they are, perhaps freezing to death. I want time to look for my children and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs, I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”

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.
