Howard Terpning


Portraits of Our Native American History


A Collection of 40 Years

The Howard Terpning portrait series showcases 40 years of Native American faces from our history. The unique individuals and their character are brought to life with twelve images. Five in full color, five using mixed media, and two in black and white. The series was designed to keep things simple as a standard 10 x 8 picture frame will accommodate the format. Each still has a canvas border should you wish to stretch the image. We will release one image per quarter over the next 3 years with only 150 signed and numbered per image. Priced at a reasonable $245 each.

There is a BONUS and FREE OFFER below. You may reserve a specific number for this Series as an automatic. If you would like to participate in the free offer and purchase all 6 images upfront, please contact us at 217-622-0515  or  217-622-5901.
