Canada-born Robert Lougheed (1910-1982) was a passionate wildlife artist and traditional Western painter. He was a member of the CAA.
From "The Illustrated Biographical Encyclopedia of Artists of the American West" by Peggy and Harold Samuels:
"Lougheed was raised on a farm in central Canada. At 19 he was a mail-order and newspaper illustrator for the Toronto Star, studying at night at the Ontario College of Art and then the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal. At 25 he came to NYC as the pupil of DuMond and Cornwell, taking off in the fall to tour the West, particularly the old Bell Ranch country of New Mexico. He has continued to work as a commercial artist, having painted Mobil's 'Flying Red Horse,' as well as calendar scenes. His illustrations appeared for more than 30 years in national magazines such as National Geographic, Sports Afield, and Reader's Digest. In 1970 he was commissioned by the Post Office Department to design the six-cent buffalo stamp for the Wildlife Conservation Series. Books he has illustrated are 'Mustang,' with the paintings in the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and 'San Domingo.'"
