A true child of the West who grew up on ranches in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, Melvin Warren was a commercial artist by day and a Western artist by night until the time when his easel art outsold illustration. Warren became a member of the Cowboy Artists of America in 1968 and won just about every award they offer, some more than once. Melvin Warren’s Wests—the Old and the New—are textured, earth-toned worlds.
