Additional Information

Not only is Out of the Mystic Past one of Fritz White’s most recognizable works, it also represents a milestone for the Museum of Western Art after a monument-sized version became the first outdoor sculpture installed at the museum in Kerrville, Texas. The Ohio artist didn’t always work in bronze; his first sculpture was carved in stone. Prior to that he had been in the Marines, played semi-professional football and worked desk jobs. Sculpture unlocked his creativity and he never turned back. Today numerous pieces can be seen around Loveland, Colorado, where the artist lived about half his life. It was in Loveland, in 1984, where White helped create the popular Sculpture in the Park event.
