Bill Pickett Pop Art
Stylish pop art print of Bill Pickett, part of the Gingham West collection by Art & Hue.

Born in 1870, Bill Pickett was a cowboy and rodeo performer who became an actor.

During his career as a ranch hand, Pickett invented “bull-dogging”, the technique of wrestling cattle to the ground by their horns, and became known for his daring stunts at country fairs and Wild West shows he staged with his brothers, who called themselves “The Pickett Brothers Bronco Busters & Rough Riders”.

Pickett toured through the United States, Canada, and even Great Britain where he performed for King George V and Queen Mary.

Silent filmmaker Richard Norman saw one of Pickett’s performances and cast him in two films “The Bull-Dogger” & “The Crimson Skull”.

Released in 1922, silent film “The Bull-Dogger” is considered to be the first Western film with a Black leading actor, making Bill Pickett the first African American cowboy film star.

Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.

This print is part of the Gingham West pop art collection, featuring Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).

Also available as part of a pair, and a group of 10.
