Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, California, 2002
From the Appalachian foothills of his youth to the mountains of the American West, explored while on a traveling scholarship in 1947, Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) gathered impressions of nature that would forever inform his artwork. He said, “I came to grips with my new attitude toward form—SIMPLIFY. I couldn’t get a Rocky Mountain on a piece of paper without simplifying it. I walked away from a scene before putting brush to paper, eliminated perspective and shading, and recorded only what I felt to be its essence. It was the most satisfying painting I had ever done. I had discovered life after realism.”
Harper’s paintings and prints have been published by a variety of nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His work has been featured in Ford Times magazine (1948–1982); on posters for the National Park Service, the Audubon Society, and many other conservation organizations; and in several books, including Harper Ever After: The Early Work of Charley and Edie Harper, Charles Harper’s Birds & Words, Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life, Charley Harper’s Animal Kingdom, and the Charley Harper Nature Discovery Series.

We absolutely encourage the process of pre-ordering "Coming Soon" items, because it hedges your bet.
You have a better chance of actually getting an item if you pre-order it now. (First come, first served - some exceptions apply.) Our systems automatically fill retail orders on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis (some exceptions apply).
We don't "allocate" products. (Allocate is a dirty word in this industry that means shipping products to other people before we ship to you... regardless of when you or they ordered.) If you ordered an item when it was first posted on our website, you are FAR more likely to receive it than if you order the same item today.
And if you wait until a later date to order the item, you might never get it at all. That's because your fellow collectors and gift purchasers have pre-ordered every single piece of an item we might be getting. (This is called "PRE-SOLD OUT.") Don't let that happen to you! Don't be left out! Pre-order now!
