John Buxton, a living master of realist painting
8/15/2013 1:52:39 AM
Dear friends, continuing our series of ARC Living Masters, I would like to present the work of an extraordinary artist in the realist movement: John Buxton, a painter of American history and heritage. The images of his paintings are often used in documentary films, in books or articles about history, and in high schools and universities. And because they are extensively researched, they enjoy an additional status. Many of them hang in various museums and at historical sites, as well as in the homes and offices of numerous private collector.

The Helping Hand

“It’s pretty common to see things written about the conflicts between the Native Americans and the settlers,” says John Buxton, “but friendships must have developed as well. Living on the frontier, they had to get along and trust one another in order to survive.” (http://theautry.org/masters-of-the-american-west-2013/john-buxton)

Wonderful detail indeed, Roger. Yet not an easy task to get to such a degree of it without overcrowding the painting - for all the technique in the world.

Thanks for coming by and the great feedback,

Miguel
