2.89 | 1984-1985 | H: 88.75 in, L: 48.5 in, width: 48.5 in | Western Man with Beer and Dog | Gift of Mrs. Henry Oliver, Jr. | Western art, especially from the time of Charles M. Russell, has a strong tradition of including humor. Roll-preissler takes a contemporary tone in mocking the commercialization associated with the modern cowboy image. Using caricature in her painting style, she emphasizes the idea of superficiality with the cut-our sculpture (a two-dimensional figure lacks depth). | A. roll-preissler, Front left: A. roll-preissler | Acoustiguide. Provenance: Conversation with artist on materials. Plywood - 5/8 AB plywood, primed with latex primer, latex extender, spackle, latex paint, empty Marlboro box, corduroy - 60% polyester, 40% cotton. Wood collected North of Lander, Wyoming (not treated), jeans - 100% cotton, Skoal can, Base - plywood, Coors beer can, steel braces.

It shows a dog that a cowboy wouldn’t generally have. I also like the beer can and cigarettes. I think it gives the piece more character. -Greybull High School art class student 2.89 | Audrey Roll-preissler (b. 1932) Western Man with Beer and Dog 1984-1985, mixed media Gift of Mrs. Henry Oliver, Jr. Western art has a tradition of including humor. In this sculpture, Roll-preissler mocks the modern cowboy image used in advertising. To emphasize her point, the artist reduced the cowboy to a shallow, two-dimensional caricature. 2.89 | Roll-preissler, Audrey
