Additional Details

Growing up in California near the Donner Pass, a place that gave rise to many a tale, Jim Reynolds was steeped in the lore of the Old West. At 13, Reynolds received a calendar with a reproduction of a Frank Tenney Johnson and he began to wonder what it would take to be able to paint like that. After a stint in the navy in World War II, Reynolds studied art, became a commercial illustrator, and enjoyed great success as a storyboard and set artist in Hollywood. In 1967, Reynolds heeded an inner call and moved to Arizona, where he became an instant celebrity among Western painters, praised for his vibrant palette, impressionistic brushwork and lively animals and figures. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 421. A copy of the book will accompany this lot
