Recent Acquisitions Gallery
March 10- August 15, 2018

The widow of an anonymous donor from Santa Fe has given thirteen works of art by important Western artist Robert Lougheed to the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. PPHM’s newest acquisitions join Lougheed’s Capturing the Medicine Hat, a 20 x 30 inch oil on board, donated in 2013. Best known for his paintings of horses, Robert Lougheed (1910-1982) was born in central Ontario, Canada, and reared on a farm. Elected to the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) in 1968 and the National Academy of Western Art (NAWA) in 1973, Lougheed received numerous awards, including the Western Heritage Award, the Colt Firearms Award, the Jasper Crospey Award, and many gold and silver medals from the CAA and NAWA exhibitions. Selections from this newest gift and PPHM collection will be featured in an exhibition in the Museum’s Alcove Gallery in “Robert Lougheed: Horses of the World.”
