Howard Rogers, 1932 | Bronze figurative sculptures



Howard Rogers began his fine art career as a highly successful illustrator on the East Coast, working on projects for national magazines and book publishers. He eventually moved west to paint full time, greatly inspired by the landscapes and cowboy lifestyle. Today, he is nationally recognized for his western paintings, although his subjects include figuratives, florals and wildlife.
He is also highly sought after for his lyrical figurative bronzes.








Howard has exhibited for the last fifteen years with the Cheyenne Frontier Days western art show and has twice been chosen by the museum to produce a limited edition print as part of the museum’s fund raising efforts.
In 2002, he won the Colonel Richard H. “Red” Smith Award at the Western Visions Miniature show held at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming.

Howard's career began in 1959. He emerged from the Art Center of Los Angeles and began a decade of work in Detroit illustrating for the auto industry. He didn't illustrate cars, but instead he illustrated the people who went into the cars.
As the auto industry moved towards photography instead of illustrations for their advertisements, Howard headed to New York to work for publishing houses, advertisting agencies, and magazines. He did illustrations for McCall's, Good Housekeeping, Harlequin Romance novels, and W.S. George.
Eventually, Howard decided to take his art in a different direction. A move to Arizona in 1993 gave Howard the opportunity to design another home. The house is whimsical, open, and has plenty of natural light. Howard carved the front door himself and it's a fitting piece to welcome the lucky guest into his home.
Much of the furniture in Rogers's home was hand-carved by Howard including gorgeous pieces in the dining room, master bedroom, and in his studio. The house brims with character and beautiful art. It is clear when taking in his surroundings, looking at his paintings and bronzes, and speaking with the man himself that he clearly loves what he does.
