Additional Information

Earle Heikka represents one of the great “what ifs” of Western art. The Montana-born sculptor, who lived in Great Falls at a time when Charles M. Russell was alive, was on track to become a respected and sought-after artist only to be derailed by the Great Depression. His own personal depression and slow sales eventually led the young artist to commit suicide in 1941. He was only 31 years old. Today, his work is rare and highly desirable by Western art collectors. It’s a measure of success that Heikka was never able to see during his lifetime.
