...Jesse W. Henderson
Raised on the family ranch in Montana's Bear Paw Mountains, Jesse Henderson
developed a love of the Western lifestlye while being raised in the context of his
native Chippewa-Cree culture.He
was especially influenced by the stories and influence of his
grandmother Mary Jane Henderson.The stories of his
people and his
love of history figure greatly in his
artwork.A self-trained artist, Jesse has an eye for detail that encompasses not only his painstaking historical research, but his meticulous crafstmanship and lifelike renderings of his subjects.
History has always been one of Jesse's star subjects in his
artwork, but his
most recent series depicting the Native American viewpoint of the Lewis & Clark expedition gives new life to the sketchy details we gain from the journals of the corps members.The first work in the series, Lewis and Clark Encounter the Assiniboines, was commissioned as a mural for the Valley county Historical Museum in Glasgow, Montana.The second piece, The Scarlet Cloth, was chosen as the cover of this year's NeMont Telephone Directory.
