L.D. “Brink” Brinkman (1929–2015) was a renowned entrepreneur, philanthropist, and art patron of Kerrville, Texas. He exhibited his impressive collection in both his home and corporate office, which became the epicenter for his collection of Western art, where he greeted both friends and artists. He acquired outstanding examples of this genre by artists such as Joe Beeler, Ken Carlson, G. Harvey, Jim Reynolds, Howard Terpning, Douglas Van Howd, and Olaf Wieghorst.

A distinguished grouping of 170 lots will be included in the live auction to take place in the Los Angeles saleroom on February 8. The online only auction, which opens for bidding worldwide on February 8, will feature approximately 180 additional lots from the collection.

Following these designated single-owner auctions, Bonhams will offer additional works from the collection in the California and Western Paintings & Sculpture sale on April 16, Native American Art sale on June 3, Traditional/Individual: Contemporary Native American Art sale on September 16, as well as a selection of monumental bronzes available for private sale.
