Van Howd Master Sculptor & Painter

Doug Van Howd has been commissioned to do work for heads of countries.  His oil painting of Yellowstone Falls was presented to the Queen of the Netherlands during the Netherlands-American Bicentennial celebrations in Washington DC.  He has twice been received as a guest of the government of Taiwan to present his works to President Chiang Ching-Kuo and President Lee Teng-hui.  His bald eagle "Masters of the Wind" is displayed in the office of the Secretary of the Interior, Washington DC, his portrait of Attorney General Edwin Meece hangs in the Hall of Justice, and his well-known "Friends of Freedom" bronze sculpture, after many years in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, has a new home in the Reagan Library.
