Olaf Wieghorst has been recognized as the "Dean of Western Painters". His work is often compared with that of Remington and Russel and his paintings hang in the great public and private collections of Western Art.
Mr. Wieghorst actually lived the scenes he renders with such insights. Cowboys, horse cavalryman, ranch hand and friend of the Indians. He roamed the West during its transaction from open rarnge to the modern world. His beautiful limited edition lithographs bring this vanished world to life with both impressionistic, skill and subject authenticity.
This beautiful limited edition lithograph brings this vanished world to life. About the picture: "Come and get it" for cowhands working on the open range this was a welcome call. The chuck wagon was both hearth and home during round up time.
Olaf Wieghorst has captured for us this special time in the life of hard working cowboys. The tranquility of the scene is dramatically framed by the surrounding landscape. Mr. Wieghorst passed away at the age of 88 (1899 - 1988).
