William “Bill” Gollings started painting professionally in Sheridan, Wyoming in the early 20th century and funded his art school tuition through selling rights to publication of several oil paintings to a mid-western publishing firm who used the western images to create calenders, lithographs, post cards, etc.

Gollings was a working cowboy and lived the western lifestyle first hand. He befriended famous Taos Society painter Joseph Henry Sharp who advised Gollings on color usage and exploring a more painterly, impressionistic style.

By 1912 or so, Gollings had blossomed into what now is considered to be one of the finest artists who first-hand, documented the western cowboy and Indian life of the western frontier.
