Chief High Pipe is another example of how Paul Calle intimately portrays the human spirit and pays tribute to the trailblazers that have gone before.
Calle is a master of both the oil painting and the pencil drawing. His drawings — often very large — show incredible control and sensitivity; they have the quality of fine etchings. Few contemporary artists have attained greater mastery of the pencil than Calle, who shares his skills in his book, The Pencil, a record of his odyssey as “an artist with a pencil.” It has been translated into French, Chinese and Russian. Another book of his art, Paul Calle: An Artist’s Journey, was awarded the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award for Fine Arts in 1993.
