Four American Visionaries

   “I chose to pay homage to Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Frederic Remington and
   Charles Russell because these four American masters were responsible for shaping our
   visual idea of what the wild West was before civilization began to tame it’s grandeur.
   More than a century later we still hold in our collective imagination the dramatic
   landscapes Bierstadt and Moran once saw and pictured, and the rugged cowboys and
   indians Remington and Russell immortalized. Today everyone who admires Western art,
   and every artist who has made contributions to its legacy, owes a great debt of gratitude
   to these four far-sighted visionaries.”   — Jenness Cortez
