Connecticut artist Paul Calle created stamps for the U. S. Postal Service and was the principal staff artist for NASA during the Mercury and Apollo eras. Calle loved American history, especially the early days of the Old West, and is best known for his superb draftsmanship. Winter Comes to Snake River has a “first snow” feel. The crispness of the lines and forms seems to match the crispness of the air and everything in the painting, from the mountains in the distance to the branches on the trees, seems to crunch like the snow under the horses’ hooves.
