Bruce R. Greene is one of the legitimate heirs to a cowboy kind of art legacy that traces its beginnings back to Charlie Russell. It is a legacy tied hard and fast to a familiarity and feeling for ranch life and based on artistic accomplishment.
In West Texas on the historic 6666s and JA Ranch, Greene has discovered and tapped into a deep reservoir of cowboy reality and enough artistic inspiration to last him a lifetime. He has seen the sun come up between his horse’s ears, and it is this privileged perspective that enables him to show viewers, through his art, the contemporary cowboy’s authentic essence.
In a May 2008 article in Western Horseman, Greene said about the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition, “It’s one of my favorite things to do because of the quality of the art and because the facility is the best there is. Being invited is an endorsement of your work and obviously that’s good for the artist, but it’s good for the collector, too, because it tells him other people have noticed this artist and put him in the upper echelon.”
