Few Things To Keep In Mind About Winfield Galleries Prints & The Winchester Artwork Collection Images

They aren't making this stuff anymore!

Most of the artwork in this collection was created between the late 1890's and 1950. Many, if not all of the artists who created these images, are long gone.

This artwork was created before photography was the common medium for visualizing advertising and promotional materials. They were also painted decades before the use of image retouching or Photoshop special effects were available to help create the finished piece or attain a desired effect.

With this in mind, the artists were challenged by Winchester to create more than just "advertising art" - they were tasked with telling a story in one image. They had to create drama, conflict, and excitement. They had to draw the viewer into the image.

And they did this through the use of vivid color, incredible detail - and an understanding of the terrain, the game and the sport.

This is not "hotel" art.

Unlike the current trend in generic, "me too" hunting art where another monster buck is jumping over a fence or a boss turkey is strutting into a clearing, the artwork in the Winchester collection represent a groundbreaking and truly original approach to "sporting art." In fact, this category of pre-1950 artwork is often referred to as the "golden age" of sporting artwork.

The images are, literally, the "crown jewels" of the American shooting sports artwork movement.

These artists were the best of the best.

Look through the offerings in each gallery and note the names of the artists. Dozens of different artists and styles are represented in the Winchester collection. In fact, after their "starving commercial artist" period, many of these folks went on to become quite famous American artists: Phillip R. Goodwin, N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Fredrick Remington, Lynn Bogue Hunt - just to name a few.
