LEADING THE WEST : ONE HUNDRED PAINTERS AND SCULPTORS The American West is more than arid deserts, sagebrush plains, canyons and mesas, towering mountains, sprawling cities, lonely ranchlands, Native America, Hispanic America. It is the landscape of the American psyche. More than any other region, the West has exemplified the essential American spirit of independence, abundance, and boundless horizons.
