The Grand Expedition
LIMITED EDITION CANVAS - BP00184  Canvas

NOTES: Drift the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and you enter a cathedral that could only have been built by the hand of God. It is a journey of an infinite variety of colors and hues, where no view or form is ever duplicated. Here, on the cool running river, the enormity and splendor of this great creation is revealed anew with every wind and turn.

With The Grand Expedition William S. Phillips gives us a spectator’s view a John Wesley Powell encampment on one of his expeditions through the uncharted canyons of this American treasure. Powell passed down this watercourse twice, first in 1869, then again in 1871-1872. He and his crews did so in specially designed dories that were state of the art designs for the day. Today, the idea shooting the rapids of the uncharted Colorado in these tiny vessels inspires as much awe as the Canyon’s views themselves.

“There is nothing more majestic to behold than the Grand Canyon at sunset,” asserts Phillips. “You begin with those stripes of horizontal color, layers upon layers of limestone to sandstone to granite. Throughout the day, as the sun transverses the sky, their colors change from instant to instant but nothing is more brilliant than when the low sun strikes the great walls and stone faces at day’s end.”

Shapes, forms and colors rise and fall in countless arrays throughout William S. Phillips’ The Grand Expedition. This artwork is available as both a 33” x 22” MasterWork® Fine Art Canvas in an edition of only 25 or as a regular sized 28” x 16” Fine Art Canvas in an edition of 50. Each of these magnificent works of art captures a momentary glimpse of history and beauty that can only be found in the great American southwest..

The Grand Expedition  Canvas by William Phillips  is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

William Phillips bio

"Phillips grew up loving art but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college he majored in criminology and had been accepted into law school when four of his paintings were sold at an airport restaurant. That was all the incentive he needed to begin his work as a fine art painter. Bill Phillips is now a renowned aviation artist and the landscape artist of choice for many collectors. Bill's strengths as a landscape painter, a respect and reverence for a time and place, help him when painting aviation as well as classic landscapes. Phillips often spends days observing landscape subjects. Finding companionship with the land, he is able to convey the boundlessness of nature on the painted canvas inspiring a reverence for the natural landscape in its beholders. After one of his paintings was presented to King Hussein of Jordan, Phillips was commissioned by the Royal Jordanian Air Force. He developed sixteen major paintings, many of which now hang in the Royal Jordanian Air Force Museum in Amman. The Smithsonian Institution s National Air and Space Museum presented a one-man show of Phillips work in 1986. He is one of only a few artists to have been so honored. In 1988, Phillips was chosen to be a U.S. Navy combat artist. For his outstanding work, the artist was awarded the Navy s Meritorious Public Service Award and the Air Force Sergeants Association s Americanism Medal. At the prestigious annual fund raiser for the National Park Service, Bill s work has been included in the Top 100 each year he has entered the competition and his work has won the Art History Award twice. Phillips was selected as the Fall 2004 Artist in Residence at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and tapped by the U.S. Postal Service to paint the stamp illustrations and header design for a pane of twenty stamps in 1997 entitled Classic American Aircraft. He was chosen again in 2005 for a pane of twenty stamps (ten designs) entitled American Advances in Aviation."
