Independent oil producer, rancher and sculptor, Rogers Reginald Aston, began casting bronzes in his late thirties. He and his wife, Mary Ellen, were collectors of art, weaponry, Indian regalia and western artifacts which he used as inspiration for his sculptures. As his mentor, Cowboy Artist of America member Tom Lovell once commented “Aston’s devotion to detail and fidelity to character are his hallmarks. One may be certain that if a weapon or costume is portrayed, it is correct.”
The Aston’s bequeathed their collection to the Roswell Museum & Art Center in Roswell, New Mexico.
