Paul Mann is an artist who grew up loving the old West and continues his love of this time period by devoting himself to bringing the authentic wild west to his canvases. He says, "I love the Golden Age of Illustration, especially art produced during the 50's and the 60's. I have always felt the caliber of art and artist during this time period were the best in illustration such as artists like Tom Lovell, Frank McCarthy, Howard Terpning and Robert McGinnis. I studied their techniques and learned everything I could from them." In addition to doing extensive research into Cowboy and Indian life and lifestyles, Mann collects costumes and handmade clothing, adornments and implements. He works from life with models that he discovers. "I love the art of building a picture, the design, color and value. I love the use of drama and strong lighting with a great story. I continue to relish the research and making and collecting clothing from the 1800's."
