Wilson Hurley was a West Point graduate, Vietnam vet, engineer and lawyer. But he left all these accomplishments behind to paint the American West. As a young man living in New Mexico, Hurley studied under Josef Bakos, Theodore Van Soelen and John Young-Hunter, important second generation Santa Fe and Taos painters who lit the flame of his passion for the land and its history. HurleyÕs magnificent murals at the Cowboy Hall of Fame and elsewhere demonstrate a deep understanding of the American landscape tradition as practiced by Bierstadt, Moran and Leigh. Hurley loved to paint the Grand Canyon, and you can see him working to grasp the subtleties of light and color in Zoroaster.
