Driving—and Rowing—Them Home  

After World War II, Cowboy Artists of America co-founder George Phippen developed into one of the most sought-after Western painters and illustrators. His 1954 28”-by-40” oil River Ford displays his knowledge of the day-to-day life of the working cowboy. For more on George Phippen and his ongoing influence on today’s generation of cowboy artists, read Jana Bommerbach’s
“Old West Saviors” column.
