White Man Fire Sticks LIMITED EDITION PRINT
NOTES: Warriors engaged in battle, a fine art first for Howard Terpning®. It is a moment captured with a veteran’s eye: rarely does a soldier see or aware of much in battle except what happens immediately around him. This is a classic Terpning, subtle and elegant to the eye because of a powerful and complex design beneath. It is a merging of The Long Shot and The Force of Nature Humbles All Man.
White Man Fire Sticks was the last painting Howard completed before his phenomenally successful one-man retrospective A Tribute to the Plains People. It was an image never before seen by the public and it was one of the most popular at the show.
“The Native people were awestruck when they first saw firearms carried by the white man and how destructive they were” Terpning says. “The early muskets were smooth bore flintlocks and, for their time, were very effective although such a weapon took time to re-load as opposed to the use of the bow and arrows.
“To the first Americans, they seemed to be sticks that shot fire out of one end. These two Blackfoot warriors are engaged in a small skirmish with their enemy, possibly the Flatheads. This area is near the Swan River in the Flathead Valley of Montana.”
White Man Fire Sticks is a rare action piece from Howard Terpning and the response to it has extremely enthusiastic. It will be made available as two Fine Art Editions. The striking MasterWork® Canvas is at 29 x 39 in an edition of 125. A beautiful and very affordable Paper Giclèe measures 17 ½ x 23 ½ and is part of an edition of 175.
Whether you are a longtime Terpning collector or considering purchasing your first, White Man Fire Sticks is an investment well worth making.

Howard Terpning bio
Quite simply, Howard Terpning is one of the most lauded painters of Western art. His awards are so numerous and he is honored with them so often, that to list them would require changing the count every few months. To name three would be to cite the highest prizes awarded to Western art: countless awards from the Cowboy Artists of America, the Hubbard Art Award for Excellence, the National Academy of Western Art s Prix de West and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gene Autry Museum.
Why such praise? Passion, compassion, devotion and respect for his subject matter, extraordinary talent in palette and brushstroke, an exceptional ability to evoke emotion both in his paintings and from those viewing them — all this and more has made Terpning the "Storyteller of the Native American."
Born in Illinois and educated at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the American Academy of Art, he first gained attention from some powerful Time and Newsweek covers. Film fans praised his movie posters for such classics as The Sound of Music, Dr. Zhivago and the re-issue of Gone with the Wind.
But his love of the West and Native American traditions saw his transition to fine art. Terpning was a long-time member of the Cowboy Artists of America, which has presented him with Gold and Silver awards, "Best of Show" awards, and "Best Overall Show by a Single Artist" awards more than two dozen times.
His first book, The Art of Howard Terpning won the Wrangler "Outstanding Art Book" award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Spirit of the Plains People, his second book, was released in 2001 in conjunction with a one-man show at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. A third, Tribute to the Plains People, was released in 2012 to celebrate his retrospective at The Autry National Center in Los Angeles.
