Coming to Trade
LIMITED EDITION CANVAS - BU00019
NOTES: John Buxton, “Artist of Our Heritage,” engages both history buffs and art lovers alike with each new Fine Art Limited Edition. His unique combination of detailed historical accuracy and artistic mastery brings the past to life as few others can. In Coming to Trade, Buxton portrays the co-existence between the French and Native Americans. “This painting an iconic depiction of what drew both sides to tolerate the other in what came to be known as the fur trade,” Buxton says. “Furs from the new world helped finance French expansion and trade items enhanced the living standard of the native nations. Bows and arrows were no longer the preferred hunting method and French cutlery replaced stone axes and knives. Cooking pots, needles and even wire soon became highly prized among the Indians as they became slightly more European. French traders, many of whom lived among the Indians, changed as well. They readily accepted native culture and customùto the extent that it was difficult to distinguish a Frenchman from his native ally. Though they tried, Jesuit priests were not quite as successful at transforming natives into cultured, God-fearing Frenchmen.”.
Coming to Trade Canvas by John Buxton is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

"John Buxton was born in the small southern town of Oxford, North Carolina. He excelled at art from childhood. After two years of general college in his home state, he earned his art degree from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California. He was a successful illustrator for 31 years, working in Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. During this time, he illustrated two books for the National Geographic Society and developed a fascination with documentation and truth in art. In 1994 he left illustration and began painting subjects more personal to his interests. Buxton soon began exhibiting his painting, placing two works in the Birds in Art show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. Northlight Books later reproduced these two paintings in The Best of Wildlife Art 2 by Rachel Rubin World. He entered, and placed in the Top 100 in the Arts For The Parks competition. The Society of Animal Artists elected him to membership and invited him to show in their national exhibitions. He exhibited with the American Academy of Equine Artists before settling into his true niche: Historical Art. Buxton s historical images of the 18th century often depict scenes from the birth of our nation, allowing the viewer to witness momentous events or experiences from everyday life of the frontier. Many historical sites display Buxton s extensively researched works and several documentary films have been aired that featured his paintings. Buxton s paintings are available as a CD Teaching Aid for educators wishing to give students a more intimate view of America s historical heritage, effectively making history come alive. His original paintings and commissioned works are in great demand. Buxton exhibits his original art at Settlers West Galleries in Arizona, Gallery One of Ohio and Lord Nelson s Gallery in Gettysburg. Buxton has shown his artwork at the Gilcrease Museum and his largest painting; a life-size standing portrait of Abraham Lincoln hangs in a place of honor at the National Civil War Museum.
