Gloss:
Harry Jackson was an important artist - not only locally, but on a national scope. As a painter, her 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. This paining is a study for the large Range Burial mural in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center's collection. Surprisingly, we only have one study for this paining in the collection already, and it is very different than this - an ink wash on paper. This paining adds nicely t the Whitney Collection and can be used in a focus display about Jackson's artistic process.
