A professional artist since 1968, Alfredo Rodriguez is internationally recognized for his masterful representations of the American West. His subjects include cowboys, mountain men, Navajo and Plains Indians, prairie and pioneer settlers, and miners from the California and Colorado gold rushes.
Rodriguez’s paintings can be found in permanent collections of several museums and in private collections around the world. His works have been the subject of many articles in major art publications and have been used to illustrate many art books. Recently, his paintings have taken on a more intimate quality, as he focuses on people interacting with each other, whether it’s an old man reading to his grandchildren or a father homeschooling his children, while preserving his focus on subjects of the American West.
Rodriguez has lived in California since 1975, but continues to travel regularly to Indian reservations and locations around the country, researching, sketching, and painting studies for his major pieces. His paintings capture the dignity of the human spirit elevated by the majestic beauty of their surroundings. Rodriguez’s works are represented by Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Settlers West Gallery in Tucson, Arizona; and Huey’s Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
