Gloss:
Harry Jackson was an important artist - not only locally, but on a national scope. As a painter, he turned his back on the predominant Abstract Expressionist art movement in New York to focus his artistic skills on representational subject matter. Eventually, as an aid to his painting, Jackson started sculpting. Jackson quickly gained attention as a sculptor of western subject matter. Pony Express first study is a sculpture full of expression in a sketchy state, but one that can stand on its own as a finished work. The sculpture will add nicely t the Whitney's collection of Harry Jackson artwork because it is unlike the other sculpture in the collection.
