    Altermann Galleries & Auctioneers, Santa Fe, New Mexico, November 17, 2013, lot 165;

    "Artists need the stimulation that comes from association with other artists. Since my particular subject is in the Western vein, Santa Fe is the culmination of years of dreaming. Western art has had to pass more tests than most people realize, but I feel that we have established Western art as fine art."
    -Harvey Johnson
