Indians On Horseback Watercolor
A dramatic watercolor painting of mounted Indians descending down a western draw in the subdued light of morning with the Rockies behind them shrouded in mist. The leading mounted warrior caries a rifle cradled in his arms and rides a gray horse, possibly an appaloosa. A second rider is seen a short distance behind him. Other mounted Indians are visible behind them. The painting is signed in the lower right but I can't be sure what all of the letters are. The first initial is "F" and the last name starts with "Rou" but beyond that I am not sure. It looks like "Rouboa..t". Who ever the artist is, he was very accomplished. The painting is a very strong piece reflecting the late 19th C west.
