R. H. Palenske charcoal
I am curious about the possible value of 2 framed pictures I was given many years ago as an avid horse lover. I believe they were purchased at a second hand store, perhaps 20 yrs. ago. "Whirlaway & the other "Assault" both have a circled "c" & what appears to be B&B ????They appear to be charcoal, maybe pencil & are on a 11 x 14 charcoal type paper, although the drawing is more like a 9.5 x 7.5 on embossed, raised middle of the paper. The Whirlaway drawing is a side view bust. Assult is also a side view bust with a corralled horse looking out at a rider herding cattle in the lower left corner. Most likely both are prints I am thinking. Thank You!

Tracy C

Man O'War
Sandy Garwood and I have the same drypoint (I think). When I compare the other litho's to what I can see on-line, mine has rounded corners which seems to be embossed. On the top left it is written - Brown & Bigelow, St. Minn. Printed in the U.S.A. The paper has a textured quality to it and also has the added drawing with the mare and 2 foals in the bottom right corner outside the embossed "frame". Lower left has B&B copyright and of course the signature "R.H. Palenske on the lower right side. Very good condition. How can I get the value on this? And how should I have it framed? It's been under glass for probably 40 years. Thank you

contact info for pricing
I suggest contacting: Palenske's son lived here, in Woodstock IL, and the Court House arts Center has a number of his dry points. Ms. Beverly Ganschow, the owner, is very informed about Palenske. Many calendars were printed by B&B, but dry point limited editions are $200- $700, depending on the usual factors. I have several. He was an authentic western artist, but his choice of media is not as popular as painting.

R.H.Palenski Grand Old Man Of The Sea
From the volume and subject matter of the questions, Mr. Palenski was quite a prolific printmaker and artist.

Most of his subject matter appears to deal with sports and hunting themes. I have a nautical drawing/print entitled "Grand Old Man Of The Sea" in the lower left corner and R.H. Palenski signed in the lower right.

The subject is a sou'wester-clad, bearded Old Salt at the Wheel of a sailing ship in Dirty Weather. It measures 10x13 inches with just the title and signature on the piece. I would imagine that a nautical-themed portrait would be an unusual topic considering the responses I've read here, so I am definitely interested in finding more info on the artist and his work.

Re: Palenske print
Hello, I have a framed copy of a drawing by R. H. Palenske, that has the appearance of being pencil, but does have the small copyright symble in the lower left corner. Then, below the border of the picture, in black (ink?) is the title, The Alarm and on the right side, the signature. I am not sure if the signature is the actual or if it is a reproduction during the printing process.
The picture is a street scene from an old west town, with the Wells Fargo stage, centered, many people milling around, and a fellow mounting a horse. Impression is that the stage had been held up and a posse is gathering.
In searching the internet sites that have Palenski prints, I have not seen this particular title listed. Lastly, what is it worth. Not for sale, just wanting to know for reference.

R. H. Palenske
I have an original etching by R.H Palenske, Title in left-hand corner (below etching)is "Night Wrangler leaving Camp". On the right-hand side is R. H. Palenske. In the right-hand corner is a circle with a c, and B&B right below, this is in pencil hardly legible. The picture is in the original wood frame. A rusty wire is stretched across the back for hanging. The cardboard that is behind the picture is made from Gaylord Boxes. There is a date stamped on the cardboard (3-28). Hidden in between the etching and cardboard was another picture, a copy of Black Canyon, New Boulder Dam Site-and The New LaSalle emblem and says The other place of interest. I would like to hear from anyone that knows the value of the etching.

Movin' up / Man O' War
In response to Linda Sullins entries: I also have a print of Movin' was obtained with the print of Man O' War from the same day of printing in the 50s. They are "Original Drypoint by R. H. Palenski Reproduced in Talio-Crome" and in their original frames pencil marked as to which # print there were. They were produced in Nashville, Tennessee by the Allen Manufacturing Co., Inc. On the back of my Man O' War it has a story of both the horse and of R. H. Palenski. It looks to have been a personal present to the original owner of these prints from Allen Manufacturer by the letter. I feel very lucky to have both of these in my possession. My Man O' War has in extremely small print (for yrs, I thought it was a smudge till I took out the magnifying glass) that reads: Brown & Bigelow, St. Paul, Minn. Printed in USA with the cute little grouping of two colts and a horse at the bottom © B&B on the bottom right hand side just above the Man O' War. On my Moving up, it has © RHP with a signature below that: under the depressed border of the picture.

I have the original etchings of Seabisquit and Grand O'l Man of War. The etchings are documented on the back with labels with the artists picture and biography. The top of the label states that these are not printed reproductions. They are original etchings. They are pencil signed.My stepfathers father was a champion harness horse racer in the early 20th century. I believe that is how they ended up with us. My stepfather passed on 5 years ago so don't know for sure. Just happy to have them.

R. H. Palenske & "Talio-Crome"
Many people are wondering what the phrase "Talio-Crome" is, and i was wondering too. After some research, this is what I found:

"There is a long series of Kentucky Derby winner prints from a company named Brown and Bigelow which were produced form the 1930's until the 1990's or so. They started out as black and white sketch or charcoal type portaits printed in a process they called "Talio-Chrome" but changed over to color in the 1960's. Each had the horse's name and the artist's signature printed on it as well. These were inexpensive prints designed for companies to give away to their customers as premiums or Christmas gifts. They originally came rolled up with a band of paper around it which gave a bit of the horse's history which is usually missing if the print has been framed, although sometimes it was glued to the back of the frame. They are quite plentiful and easy to find so they rarely bring a good price, usually $20-$25 even if framed. A few will bring more such as Man O'War or Secretariat, but only because they are so popular. These same prints show up on other advertising give away items from Brown and Bigelow such as decks of cards, ash trays, notepads, etc.

Several artists did the prints over the years, but the first was R.H. Palenske (R was for Reinhold). He was born in Chicago in 1884 and did the portraits for about 20 years until his death in 1954. His specialty was western, wilderness, and outdoors subjects and was an expert at engravings. After him, George Shepherd took over for a few years. Both had a similar style and were excellent at horse portraits. After that it was a revolving door with quite a few artists taking turns and the quality of the art suffered."

I hope it helped/helps!!!

R H Palenske
I went to an auction this weekend and bought a box of pictures for $2.00. In the box was a broken frame with a picture of a horse. When I got it home I removed it from the box and broken frame and found that there was another picture by the same artist behind it. The first one of the horse "Seabuscuit" (name in bottom left corner) RH Palenske in bottom right corner and the small trade mark is on it. The other picture is of 2 pheasants flying over a river or creek. I can not make out the name of this print. Anyone have any idea what the name of this print would be. I am not willing to sell, just like getting a great find for a low cost and marvel the work of other artists (great or not so great). Thanks for the information. Also, can you tell me if it is possible to view the originals and where this can be done. Would be an interesting stop during a travel vacation.


Hi: I purchased a pencil sketch entitled "Our Country" by Palenske. It appears to be an original as I can see the pencil border around the sketch detailing. Can you provide me with any information on this piece and if it could be an original? Thanks. Marlene

I have a talio-crome reproduction of a print of Hill Prince. There is also a small card attached entitled "Story of the Picture", which gives a short bio on Hill Prince as well as a bit of background on Palenske. There is a signature on the outside edge of the print, but I'm assuming it's not authentic
but reproduced with the rest of the print. Would this be an accurate assumption? Also, what is the significance of talio-crome? Thanks to anyone who can give me any info.

Palenske drypoint
I have a framed print titled "Let's Go!" (subject matter :whitetails and fishermen in boat) that has a short biography of the artist attached to the back. The paper states its a original drypoint by Palenske reproduced in talio-crome. The image itself has a small copyright in the lower right corner with the initials RHP. It is also titled in the lower left corner just below the edge of the image impression in the paper and his signature is located in the lower righthand corner of the image (again just below the image impression line). Can anyone tell me anything about this print? thanks WS

4 Palenske's
I have 4 original drypoint etchings. I found them in my late Uncle Larry's cellar. Because I have a degree in the visual arts and also owned race horses I was fascinated by Palenske's renditions of the regal heads of Man O' War and Whirlaway. The two others are of horses too but are more playful. All prints appear to be signed by the artist.

The art I have by Mr.Palenske is as follows "A Mans Friends"featuring a Royal Mounty on horseback looking down at his dog. "A Great Sport" featuring three Polo players. "Go Home-The Seasons Over" A pheasant & dog confronting one another in the snow. "Ponder" 1949 Durby Winner. "Maybe Five Pounds" A fish leaps out of the water of a lake to catch a fly.The lake is surrounded by birch trees, w/deer on the opposite bank, and lastly,"Ladies First" featuring two female elk followed by a large male elk. As I mentioned yes-terday, this is great art, and I'm just letting anyone know, who visits this site, what's out there. Thanks, Gerald Pedersen

I visited this site today, and to my amazement found lots of information on Mr. Palenske. I have several wonderful sketches - which I had framed back in the late 50's, early 60's. For the first time now, I know more about he/his art. I can let you know the titles of them sometime later. I have no idea either of any value, but they make my den look great. Jerry


I am working on writing his bio, would appreciate any info. I am personally looking for one called, "Our Country" or something similar, a cowboy sitting by his horse looking across a valley at a large mountain. In some very very rare instances this mountain has a large cross of snow on it. It is Mount of the Holy Cross in Colorado. Let me know if you see one. The last I saw was in France and the price was steeep and shipping was as much as the purchase price. Thanks for your help.


RH Palenske
I have an original folder from Brown & Bigelow with 4 of Palenske copper etchings
I am looking for more info on the date he did them and any thoughts on value.

My father has 2 prints by Palenske, commissioned by the Tweedy Shoe Company.These prints have documentation on parchment to verify that the prints were for that company. The prints are signed R.H. Palenske. We have been trying to find out about his art since he gained possession of them. Now I can tell him something about the artist since I've found this site.Thanks


R. H. Palenske
I have a drawing I believe signed by R. H. Palenske that is called " Ponder " - The Big Suprised. This is a picture of three horses with their jockeys racing with the head of what looks to be the winner of the race and the flower piece they put around the horse when they win the derby. Does anyone have any information on this as I would like to know if this is any special horse . It looks to be matted but, when checking it the picture looks to be actually on the matte and they have just made it look boxed. I bought it for my daughter who is a lover of horses. I would like to know what ever anyone can tell me.

Hello - I just discovered this website. I cannot give anyone information as regards market price for RH's works. However, we are looking to finish collections for our sons. I would also be interested in talking to anyone who is planning on writing RH's biography. Regards,
Suzanne Palenske
