About The Artist:

Harry Jackson began his career as a Marine combat artist in the 1940s. Later, he moved to New York City and became close friends with the artist Jackson Pollock. His Abstract Expressionist works were exhibited by Meyer Schapiro and Clement Greenberg in their ''Talent 1950'' exhibition at the Kootz Gallery, and at Tibor de Nagy, an important gallery for second-generation Abstract Expressionist artists.

After a trip to Italy in the early 1950s, Jackson abandoned the Abstract Expressionist movement and instead turned back to his roots, embracing Western art. As a child, he spent time in the Chicago stockyards and developed a fascination with the cowboys he met there. In a review of Mr. Jackson's cowboy art for The New York Times in 1980, Hilton Kramer called his career ''unlike any other in the recent history of American art''. His change of direction, Mr. Kramer wrote, ''has turned a well-known and highly praised but penurious young artist into one of the wealthiest 'unknown' artists in America - an artist unknown, that is, to the art world where his first reputation was made 30 years ago.'' Jackson became a prominent Realist artist known for his paintings and bronze sculptures of cowboys and Native Americans.

\"In the Wind" depicts a bust of Sacajawea, the Lemhi Shoshone Native American woman who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition as an interpreter and guide during their exploration of the Western United. This bust is based on Jackson's figural monumental polychrome painted bronze sculpture of Sacajawea located in the collection of the Whitney Western Art Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. The subject bronze is an excellent example of the artist's most collectible and historically significant work.
