The first casting of “John Wayne” by Gallagher Rule was presented to the “Duke” March 1979, weeks before Wayne's death.
Wayne was so pleased he said, “Damn, this looks more like me than I do,” and he wrote the sculptor's wife, “the man captured me.” John Wayne then bequeathed Gallagher Rule's portrait to the Nation Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City.
