"Canvassing the West: The Paintings of Jim Wilcox" by Jim Wilcox with a foreword by B Byron Price and an introduction by Mark Wilcox (Hard Cover, 192 pgs.)
The West is best known for its beauty, mountains, and wide open places. Jim Wilcox is best known for capturing the West on canvas. As a full-time artist since 1969, Wilcox has been “Canvassing the West” with his vivid impressionistic landscapes.
Through his travels and local outings, he has created thousands of paintings that narrow down and embody the Spirit of the West while still conveying its grandeur. His fine artistic style and compositional good sense have helped to make him one of the most recognized artists in Western art.
He has received many major awards, including the Prix de West Award in 1987 and the Frederic Remington Award in both 2002 and 2007 from the prestigious Prix de West Show. As a resident of Jackson Hole, WY, Wilcox is perhaps best known for portraying his beloved Teton Range. But his talent extends far beyond the valley he lives in.
He has traveled extensively and painted many places throughout the world. With nearly 200 color reproductions of Wilcox’s work, “Canvassing the West” exhibits his variety in subject matter, from sweeping vistas to intimate shorelines, along with plenty of his favorite Teton scenes. This long-overdue compilation of Wilcox’s work is a needed tribute to the career of one of the West’s most inspired and inspiring landscape artists.
