Jack Swanson (1927-2014)

Swanson's bronze sculptures and oil paintings have appeared in many top Western magazines, including Western Horseman, for which he created ten covers. In 1980, he was featured in an article in Time magazine. In 2002, Swanson was named Westerner of the Year at the Western Ranchers Beef Cooperative's sixth annual profit conference, where he was honored as a defender of property rights and ranching. "Ranchers are environmentalists," he says. "Their livelihood depends on their good care of the range. Their families are the type of honest and hardworking people that built America. Their roots are in the land, many for generations, and their land keeps improving under their care."
