Artist of the Moment……John Nieto

John Nieto is a contemporary American artist born in Denver, Colorado in the year 1936. Nieto works with the western genre. Rather than use subdued greys as you might find with Frederick Remington or Charlie Russell, Nieto employs bold color painting with acrylics.

In this clip we visit the Nieto art gallery. Its surely a family business and we meet many members of the Nieto family.

For his collegiate education Nieto attended Southern Methodist University located in Dallas, Texas.

Nieto has works in the collection of the Presidential Library.

Early in his career the artist also produced sculptures in bronze. Now he paints and also is a printmaker.

John Nieto is part of the Marine Corps Museum located in Washington D.C., and the New Mexico Museum of Fine Art.

Price range information: Prints range from $700 to $5,000. Originals in oils can reach as high as $20,000.

What great modern depictions of the “Old West.”
