The Tucson Museum of Art exhibition, The West Observed: The Art of Howard Post featured the work of this well-known Arizona artist. This publication accompanied the show which contains a catalogue of images on display and two essays focusing on the artist’s biography and place in art history. Over the course of his career, Post has become one of the foremost contemporary Western painters, concentrating on images of cowboys, corrals, horses, livestock, and wide pastures using his signature style and an array of colors. His strong lighting, deep shadows, abstract patterns, and aerial viewpoints present a modern perspective of Western life and environments.
