Get a glimpse into cowboy life at new Briscoe exhibition in San Antonio
Where better to gain a closer look at cowboys and the American West than the Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio?
The new exhibit Anouk Masson Krantz: “American Cowboys” showcases the enduring traditions around ranching and rodeo life from an outsider's perspective, captured through 100 black-and-white images from Krantz's solo journey across America.
"The images share today's West from the vantage point of an outsider, yet the intimacy and perspective share how the spirit of the West, and how these cowboys — and cowgirls — and their families truly live and work," says Liz Jackson, president and CEO of the Briscoe Western Art Museum.
Renowned for her large-scale contemporary photography and use of space that defines her elegant, minimalistic style, Krantz has developed several notable bodies of work, including the 2023 Western Heritage Award for her latest art book, Ranchland: Wagonhound.
Krantz’s other books include Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, West: The American Cowboy, and American Cowboys, with a forward by famed Yellowstone writer/director/producer Taylor Sheridan.
The French fine-art photographer and author is based in New York City, but has logged more than 125,000 miles to reveal the authentic daily lives of humble American cowboys.
The exhibit is currently on view through January 22, 2024.
The Briscoe Western Art Museum is nestled on the banks of the San Antonio River Walk, at 210 Market St. Visit here for more information about the museum and exhibition.
