George Phippen, a western artist from Skull Valley, Arizona, is the co-founder and first president of the Cowboy Artists of America.

Phippen did approximately 3,000 works in his brief career. Succumbing to cancer in 1966 (at age 50), he made art for only 20 years. He was a sculptor and painter in representational style of western genre, figures, and horses. He is best remembered for his bronze sculptures such as 'Cowboy in a Storm''.

George Phippen was raised on farms in Iowa and Kansas. He had no formal art education. When he was serving in World War II, he taught himself to paint. After the war, he briefly worked with artist Henry Balink in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Phippen Museum located in Prescott Arizona is funded by the George Phippen Memorial Foundation.
