I’ll be at the Coeur d’Alene Art Auction this weekend. The Harry Jackson Estate has 13 sculptures in the auction.
The sculptures in the auction are like a greatest hits collection of Harry Jackson sculpture. The Two Champs, Pony Express Painted, Marshal Painted, The Flag Bearer Painted and of course the Stampede sculpture. In The Wind is a hauntingly beautiful mask of Sacagawea and has not been at auction before. The Cowboys Meditation Painted was the first sculpture that he painted. The sculpture had been completed, but after a while the color of the cowboy’s shirt nagged at him. He wanted to know in such a situation what would the color of the shirt be and if he was wondering that so would other people wonder. If it was a painting he’d know. So he painted the sculpture and when people saw the final result they loved it. The other sculptures in the auction have a tremendous history as well: Bronc Stomper Painted, Dog Soldier Painted, Foreman Painted, Sacagawea 3′ study for a monument, The Victor Painted, Algonquin Chief and Warrior Painted.
Over the next couple of day’s I’ll post images of the sculptures and some back ground on them.
