Additional Details

California native Bill Bender saw some of the last of the cowboy idyll working with a pack outfit in Kernville in the 1930’s where, as he put it, “there were as many horses as there were cars.” The landscape made a painter of Bill Bender. He fell under the desert spell of James Swinnerton but soon developed his own style, soft, filled with light, and dappled with shadow. A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot.
