Biography from Leanin’ Tree and Sculpture Garden of Western Art:
Boulder's own world-famous train artist, Howard Fogg, single-handedly painted the trains of America into railroad history. His painstaking accuracy and artistically rendered paintings are treasured by collectors, museums and rail fans everywhere.

Leanin'' Tree published its first train Christmas card by Fogg in 1958, and since that time has reproduced over 100 of Fogg's exciting and beautiful paintings. His detailed studies of the trains of yesterday and today earned him the respect of fellow train artists and train buffs alike. Even those who do not profess to be die-hard train fans can't help but be mesmerized by the romance, mystery and strength of a Howard Fogg painting.

A graduate of Dartmouth College, Fogg studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. After World War II, he began work as a company artist for the American Locomotive Company. Since Fogg's very first crude sketch of a train at age four, he produced more that a thousand paintings of trains. These represent hundreds of different engines from nearly every railroad in North America. Fogg's paintings have established the standards for railroad art.

Ed Trumble, Director of Leanin' Tree Museum, says of his friend: "In some important respects, Howard resembled another great American artist, Charles M. Russell. For just as Russell, until his death in 1926, was compelled to paint and record every detail of his disappearing West, so Howard dedicated his life to preserving the railroading saga of North America. Both men achieved excellence by specializing in the subject with which they had firsthand, intimate knowledge. I think that history will see Howard Fogg, like Russell, as a unique artist of his own era, who was destined to record for all time a special part of America."
