"Blackfeet Patrol" Original Oil Painting by Ace Powell

US$5,000

About

(1912-1978) 14"x18", oil on canvas. Son of a cowboy, Powell was raised in Apgar, MT, on the south side of Lake McDonald. His father was a stable boss, guide and tracker for Glacier National Park. As a boy, he watched Charles Russell paint in the Bull's Head Lodge in Apgar. Ex property of Reserve National Insurance Company, Oklahoma City, OK. PERIOD: Last half 20th Century ORIGIN: Montana SIZE: 14"x18" Biography: Apgar in Glacier Park was the gathering place for multitudes of artists drawn by the scenery, possible employment with Great Northern Railroad and sales to wealthy visiting art patrons. Bull Head Lodge, Charles M Russell summer home near by, was focus of the developing school. One can only guess at how great artists like Russell, Joe de Yong and host of others interacted with the young teen age wrangler who was likely first trying his hands with the tools of the art trade. Here though the seed was planted that would grow and lead Powell upon his own path and would blossom into over ten thousands works of arts drawn from first hand experiences along with those learned from firelight tales. Powell, like many others upon the frontier, followed the "Rounder" path of marriages, army service, hard drinking and cowboying, but like the lonely rider in many of his paintings whose horse is finally tied to the hitching post of a Northern Plains ranch cabin he found his home near Glacier National Park in Hungry Horse Montana . His home here from the 1950's till the 60's was like Charles Russell's with artists coming and going including his wife Nancy McLaughlin and his own son David Powell who started his trail to a Cowboy Artist of America induction here. After a fire in 1964, Ace Powell and Nancy chose separate paths and divided. Soon after Powell partnered with Thelma Conner and spent the next 14 years traveling the art trail with her, till his death in Kalispell in 1978. Many works by Ace Powell are in the permanent collection of the Hockaday Museum of Art 302 Second Avenue East, Kalispell, Montana. Oil Paintings, Paintings - Western, Ace Powell.
