New discoveries in the archives of Lawrence Tenney Stevens are rewriting the history of Cowboy High Style.
An outstanding article about the Lawrence Tenney Stevens ~ Cowboy High Style connection, and the controversy surrounding it, was written by Elizabeth Clair Flood and published in the January 2002 issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine. It is titled Western Design Conference: The Enduring Legacy Of A Pioneer Artist Challenges The Old Guard At This Prestigious Annual Gathering. This article is a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in this style.
An upcoming book, documentary, and exhibition, will explore this subject in greater detail. John Faubion, the director of the Lawrence Tenney Stevens Trust, is available to lecture about these discoveries (see Lectures page).
