    Top right, "Casualty of War" was the first Bill Horan piece I had ever seen in the flesh, in the '90's. I stared at it for at least 30 minutes. I thought, what kind of sorcery is this!?!!?? There are many talented figurists, but Bill is the master!

    You are correct. Yes, there are better individual painters. Yes there are better individual sculptors. But no one combines the two and makes them come alive like Bill Horan.

    Its the expression he gets into a 54mm face that really blows me away, that and his animation.

    This is a brilliant post. I’d never seen so many of Bill Horan’s pieces in one place before.

    The only thing is it makes me wonder why I bother!

    I often think that his plainer, understated pieces are his best. Economy of movement and pose and wear and tear not overdone.
