Modrall Sperling Law Firm

Wilson Hurley

Wilson Hurley holds a special place within the law firm’s collection. A former fighter pilot, engineer, and a western painter of distinction, Hurley at one time was also a member of the Modrall Sperling law firm. “North End of the Sandias,” from the law firm’s collection, offers Hurley’s signature style of Southwest panorama suffused by a dramatic light that echoes the work of Nineteenth Century American luminists and Hudson River Painters. More recently, Hurley was commissioned to pain several large, panoramic murals of the West for the National Cowboy Hall of Fame.
