Leonard Howard Reedy (American, 1899 - 1956) : Native American Studies. Watercolor and pencil on paper, signed in pencil, matted and framed.
Leonard Reedy was a landscape and figure painter, born in Chicago, Illinois. He studied at the Chicago Institute and Academy of Fine Arts as well as self-taught. At the age of ten he demonstrated an unusual aptness and fondness for drawing and painting and chose to manifest this talent by illustrating the margins of his schoolbooks with his heroes of the west: Indians, cowpunchers, and bandits. He was a great admirer of Frederick Remington whose portrayal of the West and Frontier Days will forever be appreciated and cherished as historically preserving the early pioneering, indomitable spirit and tradition of a great bygone era in American History.
