Additional DetailsGeorge Dick was an outdoorsman. Peggy and Harold Samuels’s compendium, Contemporary Western Artists, states that Dick joined the U. S. Wildlife Service, traveled the West with a falcon named Margaret, and, after being wounded in World War II, recuperated in a lean-to in Jackson, regaining his strength by eating fish he caught. Dick studied with Kenneth Adams and Randall Davey and created his own approach to Western and wildlife painting. As he observed, “Most often I eliminate or subdue the background. To me, this adds to the feeling of the unknown, the vastness and the ‘foreverness’ of nature.” A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot.
