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. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 387. A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot.
