Western Horseman, June 1977: cover.

The son of two artists, Harvey Johnson did not have to be convinced to become a painter—he was naturally pulled toward it. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City and then, like many artists of the 1950s and 1960s, he worked as an illustrator for popular pulp magazines, often doing images with frontier themes. A 1966 issue of Western Horseman magazine reported that a new art organization had been started—the Cowboy Artists of America. Johnson contacted Johnny Hampton about joining and was accepted immediately. He was the first artist to apply for membership. The painter went full circle in June 1977, when Tonight We Howl was featured on the cover of Western Horseman magazine.
