Jackson masterworks cleaned and on loan to Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, GA.

Museums display Jackson 'masterpieces'In October of 2008 Harry’s heroic paintings “The Stampede” and “The Range Burial” that hung in the Whitney Gallery at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center for almost 40 years were taken down.  The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville Georgia was very interested in displaying the paintings with the  Harry Jackson sculptures they already had in their collection.  They eventually came to an agreement with the Buffalo Bill Historical Center for a 5 year loan of the paintings and to also have the paintings cleaned and mounted.  Here’s a link to the “Art Conservator” magazine Fall 2009: http://www.williamstownart.org/news/images/AC4.2.pdf
