Robert Wesley Amick

Robert Wesley Amick (1879-1969) was an American painter, illustrator and instructor who specialized in indulgent paintings of the upfront western chronicles of the United States. Amick studied at the Art Students' League of New York and the Yale School of Fine Art. He is best known for his American Old West art but painted equine, landscape and genre art of both eastern and western scenes during the Arts and Crafts era. He is perhaps best known for twelve paintings of the American West (including "Where the Sun Goes") that were widely reproduced in art prints for use in American schools. These and his portrait of the racehorse Man o' War are perhaps in the company of his most memorable works.
