Tom Lovell
The Crime Scene

1956

$16,500

About

Approximate Date: 1956 Medium: Oil on Board Signature: Signed Lower Right Size: 22.70" x 16.20" A Native American finding a Raggedy Ann doll on a lonely western road. A man teaching his blond, gingham-dressed, settler wife how to shoot a rifle. A trio of Indians warming their hands over the chimney of a snow-buried cabin in an otherwise empty landscape. These are just three of the stories told through the art of Tom Lovell, considered by his peers one of the deans of Western art. But that's not all. He was equally famous for his exciting and thought-provoking illustrations for such magazines as Life, The Saturday Evening Post and National Geographic as well as his stirring images of sweeping Civil War battles which were considered so definitive that they were telecast as part of the famous Public Television documentary on the conflict and published in the accompanying best-selling book.
