Born in Bavaria, the tales of Buffalo Bill that made their way across the ocean entranced young Nick Eggenhofer. So thoroughly did he pursue his passion that when he emigrated to the United States he quickly found a market for his art in the Western pulps. Eggenhofer’s characteristic dry brush technique and deft watercolors—as well as an absolute devotion to accuracy in matters of costume, saddlery and tack—brought a new standard of realism to illustrations of Western action and life.
This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin' Tree on page 430.
