27.71.11 | ca. 1897 | sight height: 9 in, sight width: 7.5 in | Study for Dying Trumpeter | These two studies show Paxson working out the pose for the bugler in his 1899 oil painting Custer's Last Stand. The upper sketch is closer to the final version in which the bugler continues to sound his call as Custer's men fall. In the lower study of this grouping, Paxson drew a wounded soldier with a bugle lying beside him. | LR: Paxson;LR: for Custer/By Paxson | Framed with 27.71.12 | 27.71.11.JPG | 27.71.11.jpg | Figure | Drawing | pencil on paper | Paxson, Edgar Samuel
