A two-time winner of the Prix de West Purchase Award, Morgan Weistling is known for his paintings of the American frontier spirit.
Weistling’s intimate portrayals shed new light on the Old West as he captures the mood and atmosphere of the past. His oils are filled with lush brushwork that express his love for storytelling.
His attention to detail and the historical aspects of his subjects comes from his desire to portray the truth and beauty of America’s pioneering spirit. A great deal of research goes into each painting, and he has spent his life collecting artifacts of the Old West to lend an authenticity to each painting.
His paintings have graced the covers of Art of the West, Persimmon Hill, Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, American Artist, and US Art magazines and are part of the permanent collections of many major Western museums, including the Briscoe Western Art Museum.
