About the Artist: Hugh Cabot 

Hugh Cabot III (1930-2005) gained artistic fame at the age of 22 when he was appointed by the then President of the United States and Secretary of the Navy to serve as a combat artist for the Korean War. Cabot, awarded the title of American Master Painter in 2006, is best known for his bold, powerful Western landscapes and highly distinctive portraits of the iconic cowboy.

His love for the Western frontier began at age 12, and by 14, he was deeply immersed in the culture of rodeos, horses, and ranches. Cabot spent over 20 years studying the cowboy lifestyle, perfecting his depiction of this quintessential American icon. His works are displayed in prestigious institutions like the Smithsonian, The Pentagon, and the Library of Congress, among others.

The Collection: A Tribute to Western Heritage

The "Back of the Chutes" collection is a homage to Cabot’s unparalleled ability to portray the essence of the American West. Featuring detailed sketches and vibrant paintings, this collection includes a variety of prints that celebrate the cowboy's life, from dramatic rodeo scenes to serene Western landscapes.

Prints in the Collection:

  • Denim, Parchment, & Sienna Main: Sketches of cowboys in action, perfect for a bold illustration against the rich denim & sienna backgrounds or a subtle yet striking choice with the parchment.

  • Chestnut, Navy, & Rust Bandana: Classic paisley designs in deep hues, bringing a touch of timeless elegance to any project.
