"Calf Roping" - ORIGINAL - 24" x 16" - 1994 - Oil on Canvas. FRAMED. Gregory Perillo is one of the most respected and renowned American Western artists. His powerfully dramatic, emotional depictions of Native Americans and early settlers, as well as Western landscapes and wildlife, have made him one of America’s leading painters and sculptors. As a youngster, Perillo studied the works of the masters of American Western art, spending much of his time at the American Indian exhibit in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He attended the Pratt Institute, the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League. Perillo’s most productive learning experience was spawned from a visit to Arizona in 1950, where he had a chance meeting with the legendary American master William Robinson Leigh. In what became almost a father-son relationship, Leigh taught Perillo, his only known pupil, for several years. Since then, Perillo has often traveled to Native American lands, where he has spent time studying the culture and customs as well as sketching the people and scenery of the American West. Today, Gregory Perillo’s artwork hangs in hundreds of private and corporate collections, galleries and museums throughout the United States.
