Richard Springer’s art career spans over 50 years and a great many mediums. This particular collection covers his exploration of his former home, Montana. They tell the story of one of the greatest wild places in the States but also of Springer’s wanderlust. Though Montana is known for big skies, Springer’s paintings depict the rolling country side as he experienced it. Instead of the typical vast skies and grand mountains his works engage a curiosity in the viewer, making one wonder what great wilderness lay just beyond that next hill?
