Price Guide to Country Antiques & American Primitives by Dorothy M. Hammond

William and Dorothy Harmsen were true American entrepreneurs - the ice cream store they opened in Golden, Colorado, in 1949 grew into the wildly successful Jolly Rancher Candy Company. Soon they also began to collect art that depicted the American West. They bought works of art by recognized masters of American western art such as George Catlin, N. C. Wyeth and Ernest Blumenschein, but they also acquired works by artists who were taking contemporary approaches to time-honored western themes.The Harmsens were generous about sharing their collection with the public, lending paintings to exhibitions and museums, sending groups of objects out on tour, and, in 2001, donating the collection to the Denver Art Museum.This second volume of the Institute of Western American Arts ongoing book series Western Passages celebrates the Harmsens legacy as Colourado business-people and philanthropists. Ann Scarlett Daleys lively introductory essay details the story of the Harmsens success in building both their business and their collection. Following the essay is a full-colour gallery of treasures from the Harmsen collection, accompanied by commentaries by scholars of American art.
