William Herbert “Buck” Dunton: A Mainer Goes West celebrates the legacy of the Taos Society of Artists’ resident “cowboy painter.” Outfitted in a ten-gallon hat, cowboy boots, and chaps, Maine native Dunton (1879-1936) created captivating paintings of frontiersmen firmly cemented in the historical genre of the American West. These works created a mythology of the west, focusing on the romantic geographic and cultural Southwest landscapes.
