Wyoming 1893 - SOLD
Pen & Ink on Antique Map
Wyoming, the nation's 10th largest state and with only 585,000 reidents, the least populated. In 1893, when this map was printed in the Rand McNally Atlas, the populatin was 60,000. Wyoming, the Cowboy State, is where the Code of the West can still be an integral part of daily life. In Rural Wyoming you can find neighbors offering to lend a helping hand and still have a great respect for the land. The Cowboy State still offers vast expanses of territory to roam with nearly half being federal public land.
Inspired by the Ledger Art, of Native Americans, created primarily from the 1860’s to the 1920’s, I have combine antique atlas maps and the art of pen & ink drawing into my own creative perspectives. It measures 11 X 14 inches and is framed with patinaed copper to a 16 X 20.
