Original pencil drawing with white highlights on buff paper, 19 1/2" by 15 1/2" (26" by 22" framed), signed at lower right, not dated but likely 1970's, by the noted California western artist William "Bill" Hampton (1925-1977). Hampton's prints and his art on greeting cards is very commonly encountered, but original works in oil or on paper are considerably more scarce. This piece is in excellent condition, protected behind glass. The artist was born in Simi Valley when that area was open ranching country, rather than the expansive suburb it is today. Self taught, and precocious, he produced many artworks featuring cowboys, Indians, children, and horses. After a serious horse accident, Hampton lived in the high desert in Apple Valley, where he had a studio, working from real life observation and sometimes from photographs. For a short time after World War II he was a Disney animator illustrator, but found that he preferred illustration and commercial work. Hampton's death came at the age of only 52. He was the brother of western artist Roy Hampton. Allow for reflections in a few images.
