Harry Jackson Statue

* On Aug. 2 “No True Grit With This Sale” ran in The Times. This article is outrageously unjust to the great artist Harry Jackson, who created his public masterpiece, “The Horseman,” a portrait of his close friend John Wayne, a portrait for all time. Your reporter wrote only of its weight and size as if there was no creative act involved whatsoever. This is an outrage. No valid excuse exists.

Harry Jackson of Cody, Wyo., and Camaiore, Italy, is the artist who envisioned “The Horseman” for Great Western Financial Corp. Jackson devoted over three years creating “The Horseman” in his Italian studios.

How can the name of its creator go unmentioned?
