Write Up: With little training in art at all, apart from three months with Henry Balink in Santa Fe, after World War II, George Phippen still somehow secured a contract to illustrate catalogues for Brown and Bigelow. Soon, Phippen was making a living making art of the American West. Phippen, the first President of the Cowboy Artists of America, once said, “The art game, which includes illustrating, fine art, and cartooning, is considered about the toughest business there is… but no job holds the freedom the arts do once you make the grade.”
