Cody - Western Gentleman
Mary Ellen Anderson
Painting - Oil On Canvas
A monochrome rendering, of William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, conveys the vintage and historic feel of a by-gone period. The rough and weathered face and the strong steady gaze belie any hint of easy-living from the finery of his dress. Light illuminates a man of power and self-reliance, Cody was a decorated soldier in the American west, and a celebrated showman. His flamboyant character and heroic adventures made him a legend. Un-conflicted in his time; a man of the American Wild West.
This painting looks stunning in a den, or library. A rustic very warm elegance.
William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody (February 26, 1846 - January 10, 1917) was an American soldier, bison hunter and showman. He was born in the Iowa Territory (now the U.S. state of Iowa), in Le Claire but lived several years in Canada before his family moved to the Kansas Territory. Buffalo Bill received the Medal of Honor in 1872 for service to the US Army as a scout. One of the most colorful figures of the American Old West, Buffalo Bill became famous for the shows he organized with cowboy themes, which he toured in Great Britain and Europe as well as the United States.
