  • Kansas City, MO-KS (1888PressRelease) April 08, 2015 - Master artist, Ernst Ulmer (1922-2009) had a great love for history and created an outstanding series of Native American, cowboy and pioneer paintings currently on exhibit at Kansas City, Missouri gallery, Buttonwood Art Space.

    Early in his career as an artist, Ulmer designed and illustrated sets at Old Tucson Studios, where television shows including "Gunsmoke", "Bonanza", "Little House on the Prairie", "Father Murphy" and other westerns and feature movies such as "Three Amigos", "Tombstone" and "The Quick and the Dead" were filmed. Ulmer's love of history led to a long series of historical cowboy and pioneer paintings, also being sold in the Buttonwood Art Space, Kansas City gallery. Also featured are paintings from Ulmer's Civil War, nude and figure study series.

    "The family of Mr. Ulmer desires to liquidate his remaining collection of paintings in conjunction with donating key pieces to museums and charity institutions. Prices are very attractive and well below appraisal values", stated gallery owner Jon McGraw. "This exhibition will mark the last opportunity to purchase and own original Ulmer paintings."
