Object name: Western Man with Beer and Dog

Accession Number: 2.89

Date : 1984-1985

Gloss: Western art, especially from the time of Charles M. Russell, has a strong tradition of including humor. Roll-preissler takes a contemporary tone in mocking the commercialization associated with the modern cowboy image. Using caricature in her painting style, she emphasizes the idea of superficiality with the cut-our sculpture (a two-dimensional figure lacks depth).
