Artwork Inquiry

M.S. Franco


Just arrived in the gallery - great new bronze of The Last Comanche Chief, Quanah Parker, by Texas artist M.S. Franco. This is No. 4 of an edition of only 10. Available individually or as part of the one-of-a-kind Quanah Parker Collection (see "Special Collections"). This is a wonderful new piece destined to become a classic.
