William Herbert Dunton - Partners of the Open Range Painting
William "Buck" Herbert Dunton (1878 – 1938) was an American painter who specialized in the painting of cowboys and the American southwest. Born in Augusta, Maine, Dunton worked as a ranch hand during his early years. He was a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1915 and his paintings, like the one shown, helped shape the American imagination about cowboy life during the Open Range Era.
