The upcoming Full Auction Session auction includes over 450 pieces of decorative and fine art. Offered by Altermann Galleries, the sale will especially highlight Western American art that depicts cowboys and Native Americans. “Brad Creek Crossing,” a painting by Gerald Harvey, is among the highlights of the auction. Harvey’s early work was inspired by ranch stories that he heard from his parents. He once said, “My paintings have never been literal representations. They are part of first-hand experience and part dreams generated by those early stories I heard.” Another noteworthy item is the “No Place to Ford” by Howard Terpning. The painting shows a Native American on a horse beside a flowing river and a jungle. Other lots of interest include the works of Ray Swanson and Robert Griffing, whose paintings of an elderly Navajo shepherd and a portrait of a Mohwak war chief are featured.
