^ Born on 26 June 1874: Frank Tenney Johnson, US painter who died in 1939, specialized in the US West.
— A painter and illustrator known for his depictions of the US West, Frank Tenney Johnson was born and raised in the Midwest. He studied under Richard Lorenz, F.W. Heinie, and Robert Henri, as well as at the Art Students League in New York. He moved to New York permanently in 1902 and in 1904 made his first trek to the Southwest, where for five months he recorded his experiences in the form of sketches and photographs. Johnson traveled often to the West to gather such source material for the paintings he executed in his New York studio. He produced illustrations in this fashion for such magazines as Field & Stream, Cosmopolitan, and Harper's Weekly. In an effort to preserve the vanishing West for posterity, Johnson focused on cowboy and Native American subjects, as well as occasional wildlife scenes.

Grizzly Bear in Winter Forest (1913, 76x51cm) _ Here Johnson depicts an impressive beast as it walks unwittingly into the sight of a hunter's rifle. We are struck by the plight of the hapless animal and reminded of the role humans have played in depleting a rich wilderness of much of its wealth. The dark, somber colors of the composition contribute to a feeling of foreboding, as we find ourselves uttering a silent prayer that the hunter's bullet will miss its mark.
Texas Night Riders (1929, 89x102cm) _ This painting is a dramatic rarely seen night view of Texas ranch life. Johnson, like Dunton, paints in the tradition of Remington and illustrates ranch life from the point of view of the traditional cowboy. This painting is particularly striking because of the overall green tonality and the wonderful starlit sky.
