The Works of Stephen Naegle - A Catalogue, Page 2
The main purpose of the catalogue is to make a master list of any known work by
Stephen Naegle.

I might say that copies of the book, Masters of Western Art by Mary Carroll Nelson with many
Naegle painting images are readily available through Ebay, Amazon.com and through private
galleries and booksellers.  Visitors to this site, especially
anyone with works by Mr. Naegle,
please contact me
to have your Naegle's listed, and if you are so kind to provide an image of
the work, as many are.  Thank you, Bruce Dickey  
Keeping your name and location private is fine, by simply listing the work as Private Collection.

8.  Montana Homestead

This painting is an abandoned house in a wilderness area.  It sports three
chimneys, a lean-to room out back, and a wooden yard fence.  This landscape
has an incredible mountain range in the background.  Very well done.  
Watercolor on paper, 14" by 21".  May be found on page 155 of the book,
Masters of Western Art by Mary Carol Nelson.

9.  Frontier Creek

In the distance an overcast sky hovers over a sprawling mountain range
in late evening.  The fading light readily reflects off the rivulets of the
creek.  The darkened right foreground is covered in conifers reaching
skyward.  Oil on canvas and is 36" by 48" in size.  This landscape of
Frontier Creek is also portrayed on Page 154 of the book, Masters of
Western Art by Mary Caroll Nelson, Watson/Guptill Publications in New
York.

12.  White River

This painting is of a large tree with a incredibly heavy brush thicket.  Despite
the title, there is no river evident so it must denote location.  Stephen did a
thicket series during his Masters of Fine Arts program at Utah State
University.  It was to be a recurring theme in his work.

This two color lithograph of an original watercolor, quantity of fifty, size 22 by
28 inches, Masters of Western Art, page 82, original painting is water and
tusche on toned paper.

13.  Castle on a Hill

Oil painting perched on an easle in a photo of Naegle's Studio depicts a lone
castle on an outcroping of rock emerging from the terrain  There is a forground
of forest trees seen from above with a heavily clouded sky and distant skyline.

It is an assumption that this is his work, but based on the fact it is located in
Naegle's studio, I feel it is one of his.  Also, some of the art on the walls could
later be classified as his work, especially one of a barn wall laden with wagon
team tack and hardware.  I think they are called single-trees?  That's for later.  
From the book, Masters of Western Art, page 83.  The author is Mary Carol
Nelson and the publisher is Watson/Guptill, New York.

Permission sought from the publisher or owner of this work to display image.

14.  Saddle Rock

Saquaro cactus with brush in the foreground, the watercolor painting had the
prominent subject as a major rock formation in the rear.  The rock formation
must have conveyed the idea of a horse's saddle.  I can see it in this work.
Full sheet watercolor in size.  Masters of Western Art, page 157.

Permission sought from the publisher or owner of this work to display image.

11.  Desert Wash

Wispy cirrus clouds sail past a desert mountain.  Saguaro cactus are sprinkled in the
foreground of brush and dry grasses.  The wash gives evidence of torrential rains
eroding the Earth away over eons of time.  This painting is found on page 155 of the
book,  Masters of Western Art, by Mary Carol Nelson, Watson/Guptill Publisher, New York.

Frontier Creek surfaces in Texas.  The image above is this
Naegle Oil hanging in it's new home November 2007.  Thanks to
Anthony S.  we have some new images of this painting.  I've
requested a Naegle family member who's great at deskewing
images to have a go at this one.

Thanks for letting us show a few more images of your painting
