Olaf Wieghorst
The Dean of Western Artists
 
 Olaf Wieghorst (1899-1988) was born in Viborg, Denmark, son of a Danish photographer and film animator. He was known as the "Dean of Western Artists" and placed in a class with Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. Olaf was at one time an acrobat, trick rider, cavalryman, cowboy, mounted policeman, and one of the greatest western artists ever. His experiences as a cowboy and horseman give truth and reverence to his work. Olaf Wieghorst created his art not only with a skillful hand and eye, but with a skillful heart.
