Large Antique Buffalo And Indian Oil Painting C. 1910 Western Art - 38" By 31" For Sale
Fine Items from ALittleUnlimited
An impressive and large antique Western oil painting on canvas depicting a suspenseful scene - A herd of buffalo in the distance, moving across the plains during a blizzard, while in the foreground three buffalo have been forced to interrupt their journey in order to defend the herd. They stand still, suspiciously studying the injured body of an Indian lying face down in the snow. His prone form is contorted; his torn clothing exposes his flesh to the frigid weather while blood drains from his head onto the snow. The viewer is left to wonder, was the man wounded while hunting these buffalo? Is he dead and no longer a danger to the herd? One can almost hear the wind and feel the stinging snow in this dramatic tableau portraying a life and death moment in a vanished American west.
This substantial painting makes an imposing presence on the wall. The painting itself measures 38" by 31" edge to edge as it is currently stretched. The sight size is 37 5/8" by 30 1/2" and the exterior dimensions of the frame are 41 5/8" by 34 1/2". The frame molding is 2" wide.
The painting is in good, unrestored condition showing normal signs of age and wear including an old patch to a small hole on the lower left. There is some craquelure to the paint and there are typical minor holes and losses to the paint, mentioned for accuracy. Please view all of the photographs. There is no signature on the painting that I can find. It dates to the very early years of the 20th century, c. 1900 - 1910.
